Below is an excerpt posted on Time's 'Detroit Blog' about the scholarship program Kid Rock is helping to fund for Michigan college kids studying music at Wayne State University.
The words, Made In Detroit' mean something, explained Thomas Dubak, president of Made In Detroit. They tell a story about hard work, believing in your dreams and being proud of who you are and where you come from the same message expressed through Kid Rock's music. That's why he felt it was important to establish a scholarship at a time when Michigan's economy has been hit hard and families can't afford college. This music scholarship at Wayne State helps to ensure that our future musicians will get an education, and it speaks volumes about how much Detroiters care about each other.
