Generous citizens continue to donate to the 2014 Elgin Scholarship Drive as graduation day nears.

These donations will be eligible for matching funds.
The match is given by the Colonel Barney Oldfield and Vada Kinman Trust.
Altogether more than 90 students have received scholarships over the past 11 years.
New donations were received from Mildred Pelster, Mike & Connie Dvorak, Robert & Debbie Busteed, Tom & Orfilia Eischeid, and Bernadine Erickson.
The scholarship fund now stands at $3,080.
