About this scholarship
The Matt Christensen Scholarship was established by Judi and Alyssa Christensen to honor their son and brother Matt, who was a former Caledonia student. Matt was an outgoing, loving, hardworking, free-spirited individual who lived his life to the fullest. He had a passion for trying new things and working with his hands including sports and being in the outdoors. Matt was also an entrepreneur who gave back to others from a young age including raising money for the Van Andel Institute and would lend a hand to anyone in need. His personality always lit up a room and he loved meeting new people and considered everyone he met his family.
