• Michael Schuetz " Live Your Dreams Scholarship"

    Foundation Background:

    The Michael Schuetz “Live Your Dreams” Foundation was established in 2004 after the death of Michael David Schuetz.  Michael was an Allendale resident for almost all of his life, from 5 years of age to his death at 45. He attended Northern Highlands and while he was not an outstanding academic student in High school, he always found creative outlets.He found his calling, matured and excelled in his craft during his college experience and continuously thereafter. He was an exceptional person who always believed in going after your dreams with gusto, and that every day should believed to the fullest. Michael was interested in everything, highly-dedicated,and never met anyone who he didn’t consider a friend.  He embodied the quote:

    “Successful is the person who has lived well,laughed often and loved much, who has gained the respect of children, who leave the world better than they found it, who has never lacked appreciation for the earth's beauty, who never fails to look for the best in others or give the best of themselves.”


    Michael graduated from the University of Cincinnati in Industrial Design. He always had a passion for working with his hands, building and architecture, and a true creative spirit. He used this spirit in everything he did for his work, for his family and for his community.

    This foundation was started with donations from his many family and friends to perpetuate his memory and his spirit. It is fitting then, that the Foundation award a graduating Northern Highlands student the funds to help them pursue their love of design and life, building and working with their hands and ultimately “giving back” by successfully using those skills.
