Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities

In light of COVID-19, The Michaels Organization Educational Foundation has extended the deadline for this year’s resident scholarship grant applications to May 13.

With social distancing and schools closed, this deadline extension will allow residents more time to complete applications.

The Michaels Educational Foundation, a non-profit affiliate of The Michaels Organization, awards scholarship grants to residents of Michaels Organization properties who are pursuing some form of higher education in a college, a trade or professional school, or an institute. Last year, 24 FLFHC residents received scholarship grants.

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://www.michaelsscholars.com/. Transcripts are required.

Mail the application form, references, essay and grade transcripts to Dr. Bruce Johnson, The Michaels Educational Foundation, P.O. Box 90708, Camden, NJ 08101.

Call Meghan Fowler at (913) 682-6300 for more information.

Closure

The FLFHC Community Center and fitness center at 220 Hancock Ave. are closed until further notice.

The FLFHC offices remain open by appointment only.

Utilities tip

When using the oven, it’s tempting to frequently open the door to check on a dish’s progress, but because the hot air that is contained in the oven is an important part of the appliance’s cooking process, frequent peeking is self-defeating.

Every time the oven door is opened, the temperature inside is reduced by as much as 25 degrees, forcing it to work even harder — and use more energy — to get back to the proper cooking temperature. If you need to check on a dish, use the oven window instead.
