Olivia Huszti, a Fall 2006 recipient of the Collector's Foundation scholarship, is a member of the "Flat Rock Welders," students from Flat Rock High School in Flat Rock, MI who excel in welding as high school students and attend WCC to hone their skills and compete in state and national welding competitions. Olivia has earned many honors in her tenure as a welding student, including winning seven competitions in high school and even has the claim to fame of being the first female to place in the Ferris State University competition.

Olivia plans to earn an Associates degree in Welding at WCC and then enroll in the college's Custom Cars and Concepts program. She then plans to transfer to Ferris State to obtain a Bachelor's degree in engineering. Her ultimate dream is to design and engineer cars. Receiving the Collector's Foundation scholarship has been helpful to her in attending WCC because she lives 30 miles away from the college and commuting is costly. She also has two other siblings in college, so she must pay for most of her education herself.
