Michael Brewer joined the board in the late winter of 2015.

He has a BBA in Management Information Systems from the University of Wisconsin-Eu Claire.

Michael said he knew full well what today’s workhorses were going through.

“Betsy and I were workhorse scholars, the exact candidates to which the Erickson Merkel Foundation is reaching out,” Michael said. “We understand that it can be a struggle to finance a college education without building up debt that can burden a graduate for many years after school. We were fortunate enough to complete our degrees without a penny of debt and would like the opportunity to help others achieve the same.”
