Message From Jess
Dear Robert Emmet Society Members,
Thank you so very much for this wonderful opportunity. Most days I can barely contain my excitement for my upcoming adventure, which would not be possible without everything you have done. I am so glad historical societies like this one still appreciate the importance of honoring great people who many have forgotten. Researching Robert Emmet has been thoroughly enjoyable, fulfilling, and enlightening. I really cannot imagine an opportunity I would be more excited about, and I will remember it forever. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
The Robert Emmet Society was founded in the early 1990s to honor Robert Emmet, the namesake of Emmet County, Michigan, and to make area residents more aware of Emmet’s brief, but courageous life and his enduring legacy as a champion of freedom and democracy throughout the world.
The Joseph W. McCarthy-William McCullough, M.D. Memorial Scholarship award is the Society’s major activity year year. In conjunction with the Blissfest Music Organization, the Society also awards The Judge Ned Fenlon Music Award. All fundraising activities support these scholarship awards.
