    Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities is pleased to announce scholarship opportunities for residents through the Michaels Organization Educational Foundation, a non-profit affiliate of The Michaels Organization.
    The foundation awards scholarship grants to residents of Michaels Organization properties who are pursuing some form of higher education, in college, a trade or professional school, or an institute. In 2019, the foundation will award at least $500,000 in scholarship grants. Last year, nearly 30 FLFHC residents received scholarship grants. In its first 26 years, the foundation awarded more than $5.2 million in grants to worthy students throughout the country.
    The scholarships are available to the family members of active-duty service members residing in housing communities owned or managed by the companies of The Michaels Organization, which includes Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities.
    For more information or to download a copy of the application, visit https://tmo.com/foundation, or stop by the FLFHC Community Management office at 220 Hancock Ave. to pick up a printed application packet. Deadline for applications is April 12. Transcripts are required.

    Super Savers
    The Super Saver program is designed to promote conservation in the home and increase awareness and understanding of the information on resident utility statements.
    Residents can nominate themselves for the Super Saver of the Month award by submitting a nomination form, which can be found on the FLFHC website at www.ftleavenworthfamilyhousing.com. Bring the form and a copy of the most recent utilities statement to the FLFHC office at 220 Hancock Ave. by the 21st of each month.
    Utilities tip
    In the average home, 75 percent of the electricity used to power home electronics is consumed while the products are turned off. This can be avoided by unplugging the appliance or using a power strip and using the switch on the power strip to cut all power to the appliance.
