Generous Gift Will Help Northwood Improve Campus

A Mount Pleasant couple is donating more than $2 million worth of classic automobiles to support Northwood University and The Northwood Idea.

Michael and Dianne Morey have pledged 35 vehicles from their automotive collection in Mt. Pleasant. The majority of the cars will be auctioned off in June to support scholarships and an endowment. The Morey family will transfer the vehicle titles to Northwood University prior to the close of this calendar year.

Michael Morey says the cars have been a big part of the family’s lives and each has a story to tell, but it’s time to give them new purpose. The college plans to keep a 1958 Corvette for display. Northwood will use up to $1 million of the proceeds to build on recent campus improvements.
