The Holland Scholarship is a result of one person’s love for music and students. Merle Holland Leis Frenzel was a 1954 graduate of Arthur Hill High School. She graduated with a degree in music education from Capital University and returned to Saginaw to teach choral music at North Junior High and then Arthur Hill High School. Later she received her counseling degree and completed her career in that field, retiring in 1997.
