M.J. Sage-Mudgett Scholarship

This scholarship was created in 1996 in honor of Robert Sage’s sister, Margaret (M.J.) Sage-Mudgett, and the family’s deep respect for education. 

Margaret was the daughter of William and Effa Sage.  William, one of the founders of Tecumseh Products, was a leading businessman and philanthropist.  Margaret graduated from St. Joseph's Academy in Adrian in 1942.  She then completed two years at Siena Heights, finally earning her bachelor's degree in social work from Mercy College of Detroit (University of Detroit-Mercy).  Margaret was married to Ford Mudgett in 1947, and they remained in Lenawee County to raise a family of three sons and seven daughters. 

Education is highly regarded by the entire family.  Margaret found her educational experiences at St. Joseph's Academy and Siena Heights instrumental in her life.  This scholarship was designed to help students from Lumen Christi High School in Jackson, Mich., achieve their goals in higher education by attending Siena Heights.   The scholarship is awarded annually to a student with financial need, with preference given to graduates of Lumen Christi High School in Jackson, Mich.
