An unaffiliated supporting branch of Clinton Schools is navigating the COVID pandemic with limited ability to fundraise and even meet, but that isn't slowing down their plans for the year ahead.
Russell Long with the Clinton Community Education Foundation indicates they are like many other groups in Clinton, DeWitt County, and central Illinois in that their fundraising efforts have taken a major hit this year.
When asked if the CCEF would have to scale back with the losses of revenue-generating events like their 'Derby Day', Long said, quote - "absolutely not." He says now is the time when the schools, the teachers, and the kids need them and they have no plans to cut their giving.
Heading into December, Clinton teachers should be on the lookout for information coming their way regarding the CCEF's annual teacher grants and seniors should be on the lookout for information about their annual scholarships.
Long points anyone with questions about the CCEF, their teacher grants, and their scholarship opportunities to their website, ccef15.org. The CCEF is also on Facebook and Twitter.
