GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., -- The late David Schieber was a beloved member of the graduating class of 1970 from Sparta High School. He later went onto serve as a professor at GRCC and Kent County's assistant prosecutor before he passed away in September 2009.

Members of David's graduating class hope to carry on his legacy, passion for education and law enforcement by raising money to help future GRCC students pursue their own passions.

“The Class of 1970 wanted to do something to say thank you to Sparta and to remember a classmate who made a positive impact on the community,” said organizer Dwight Anderson. “David was a well-liked and respected prosecutor for Kent County, who also loved teaching a criminal justice class at GRCC, which he did for many years as an adjunct professor. Many police officers remember him specifically for that class and we thought this would be a good way to honor him and give back to the community.”

The goal is to raise $25,000 for deserving students going into law enforcement. The fundraiser is being held September 13 at the Sparta Cellar Brewery.
