ECF Scholarship Drive At $2,700

Donations continue to come for the 2014 Elgin Scholarship Drive as graduation day nears.
The annual scholarship fund drive is being sponsored by the Elgin Area Community Foundation.
During the past week, approximately $700 was received which, in turn, will be awarded to students from Elgin and Pope John schools next month.
Donations raised before April 30 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 Barb Bode, Jim Fredrickson, John & Patricia Sehi, Juan Hoefer, and from the Bank of Elgin. The scholarship fund now stands at $2,700.
Persons wishing to make donations can do so by mailing their gift to Elgin Scholarship Drive, P.O. Box 345, Elgin, NE 68636.
