Shuman Family Performing Arts Student Grant Program


In August, 2014, Shuman Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM Dealership of Walled Lake generously contributed $50,000 to the Foundation for Excellence–Walled Lake Schools for the establishment of the Shuman CDJR Performing Arts Student Grant Program.  A limited number of grants are awarded annually, where financial assistance is essential, so students may sustain involvement or establish membership in the Walled Lake Consolidated School District high school performing arts.
