Pay it Forward

ONYX is an organization of young leaders in the Ottawa community with diverse educational backgrounds and careers. As our thanks to those who have helped us achieve our dreams and establish careers within this community, we take a moment every year to pay it forward.

Each spring, we offer a scholarship competition for graduating seniors of Ottawa Township High School and Marquette Academy.  Those awarded will benefit from financial assistance to further their post high school education or vocational training.  Our hope is that the recipients will, in turn, return to the area to establish their careers and enhance the community.

To help fund our annual scholarship program, we host a 5K event called the Scholarship Scoot. Proceeds from the event enable us to award two $1,000 scholarships each year.
