Once again in 2022, the Owensboro Lions Club was honored to help our community by presenting $5000.00 ($1000 to each institution) for scholarships. Present at our August 16 meeting to accept the awards were Lauren McCrary, VP for Executive Affairs and Chief of Staff, Brescia University; Dr. Scott Williams - Owensboro Community and Technical College; April Conkrite, Student Service and Outreach Coordinator, WKU-O; and Scott Kramer, VP of Executive Initiatives and Retention, KY Wesleyan College. Unfortunately, Doug Hoyt, Wendell Foster CEO, was invited but could not attend.
The four colleges will use the money to provide financial assistance to students while Wendell Fosterís Campus uses the money to help provide children and adults having developmental disabilities with the tools, education, therapies, and support through a wide array of services including outpatient therapies, day services, assistive technology resources, transportation, and residential options.
We would like to thank each of these institutions for their efforts to improve the lives of students and the quality of life in our community.
Congratulations to each of these institutions for its outstanding contributions to our community.
