Evans Scholarships
The Grosse Pointe Historical Society awarded three
high school seniors the Clayton Walker Evans

their high schools. The scholarship was founded in 1993
in memory of Evans who had been active president of
the Society for many years.
This year’s recipients are Andrew VanEgmond
from Grosse Pointe North who will attend Michigan
State University on a full scholarship, Andrew LaLonde
from University Liggett School who will attend
Washington and Lee University, and Tamara Andrade
