The Clinton Community Educational Foundation will received $200-thousand to disperse for scholarships for high school students.
Thanks to an endowment from Vincent O. Greene Estate, the district recently received $200-thousand and Superintendent Curt Nettles says the Board of Education has agreed to turn those funds over to the Education Foundation for them to give out additional scholarships.
According to Nettles, the estate has set the precedent the moneys must be used for scholarships. He says it cannot be used for technology or any other things in the district.
The Clinton Community Educational Foundation distributes their own scholarships thanks to their Vincent Beggs Memorial Fund and distributes scholarships on behalf of Exelon as well, so distributing scholarships is something at the very core of the Foundation already.
