RCCF awards more than $118,000 in local scholarships

The Rush County Community Foundation hosted the 2014 Scholarship Celebration on May 19. The event recognized the donors of 57 local scholarship funds that made the evening possible and the 77 deserving Rush County students awarded. The 2014 Lilly Endowment Community Scholar was also recognized. In total, 118 awards were distributed.

More than 250 founding contributors, fund representatives, donors, Foundation board and committee members, recipients and their families attended the celebration held at the RCHS Cafeteria.

Alisa Henderson, RCCF Executive Director, welcomed everyone on behalf of the Foundation’s Board of Directors and staff.

“Tonight is not only a time to celebrate our deserving recipients, but also a time to recognize our donors. It’s an exciting evening for all of us here, but also a bittersweet evening for many of the families that have established funds at the Rush County Community Foundation in memory of a loved one. Without the generosity of our donors we wouldn’t be here this evening. Because of our donors, the Rush County Community Foundation is proud to be in its 23rd year of operation. In that time our assets have grown to over $11 million and we have given over $8 million exclusively within the Rush County community. If you look a little more closely when you’re out in the community, it’s likely you’ll recognize that we have been a partner in many developments throughout the county. We have given approximately $3.5 million to Rush County students in scholarships since our first Frank and Frances Hilburt scholarship award in 1995. Because of our philosophy and donors, these numbers will only continue to grow as we make an impact in our community forever.”

JB Gardner, board president, spoke on behalf of the 2014 Board of Directors and thanked everyone for attending. Terry VanNatta, Assistant Executive Director and CFO of the Foundation, joined Gardner, fund representatives, board members and Henderson in presenting the scholarship awards to the students.
