Established in 2009 at the Community Foundation of Plymouth, in memory of Starr D. Kohn, this Scholarship will provide tuition support for University of Michigan Civil Engineering students at the undergraduate level.

As a long-time employee of SME in Plymouth, Starr Kohn was "always pushing learning, growing, and challenging others to be better.  Mark Kramer, President & COO of SME shares, "Starr Kohn was one of the smartest people I have ever met.  With a PhD from the University of Michigan to prove it; he was also one of the  most practical and street-smart people you ever met. We thought a scholarship in his name to the University of Michigan was appropriate as he was a Michigan grad and he always wore his U of M crocs on Fridays." - shares, Mark Kramer, President & COO of SME.
