Through generous donations made by citizens, and businesses in and around the Clarke County area, the Clarke County Education Foundation, Inc. awarded 16 scholarships and grants totaling over $16,500 to Clarke County High School students this past Sunday. The presentations were made during Clarke County High School’s Senior Recognition Night at the Johnson Williams Middle School Auditorium.
Scholarship recipients were selected among students exhibiting a high degree of excellence and commitment in various academic, athletic, performing arts, and career pursuits determined by the Clarke County High School Scholarship Selection Committee.
John Hudson, President of the foundation made the presentations and stated; “Each year it has been a very satisfying experience to appear before Clarke County’s seniors and see the excitement and optimism in their faces for their futures, knowing that the generosity of so many contributors will be helping to make their dreams a reality. For that, we are extremely proud”.
Each year the Clarke County Education Foundation awards numerous student scholarships and tens of thousands of dollars in teacher grants to enhance the classroom-learning environment. The foundation also funds requests from the superintendent to augment instructional programs at system wide levels. Nearly $2,000,000 has been distributed by the foundation for these purposes over the past 19 years.
