2023 Carl Parsell Scholarship recipients Nolan Campbell of Shelby Township and Marisa Fisher of Sterling Heights share a passion for their future careers. Now they each have $2,500 in scholarship funding to help them achieve those dreams.

While they are at different points in their educational journey, Fisher, a Central Michigan University junior, and Campbell, who graduated high school in May, began preparing for their careers in high school and enjoy helping others in their communities and schools. Both have earned honors for academic excellence.

The two were formally recognized at the 33rd Annual Carl Parsell Memorial Golf Outing on June 8, 2023 at Links of Novi.

The Carl Parsell Scholarship Fund, established in 1991, continues the legacy of Carl Parsell, a law enforcement union movement pioneer, by improving the lives and futures of others through education. Scholarships are awarded annually to Michigan family members of Michigan Association of Fire Fighters (MAFF), Michigan Association of Police (MAP) and Michigan Association of Public Employees (MAPE) union members.

Since the fund's inception, $143,000 in scholarships have been awarded. Scholarship funds are derived from the Annual Carl Parsell Memorial Scholarship Golf Outing.
