Friends and Colleagues of Kurt Kimball
Established to honor Kurt F. Kimball’s 22 years as the longest serving city manager of Grand Rapids. Kurt has worked for Grand Rapids for more than 35 years and has lived here for more than 54; during that time, he has mentored many Grand Valley students. In celebration of his retirement, contributions from Kurt’s friends and colleagues made this scholarship possible.
Kurt hopes that this scholarship will attract professionals to careers in public management and local government. This scholarship will provide support for graduate students in the School of Public and Nonprofit Administration pursuing careers in local government.
