[OCT. 4, 2006]
Central Illinois Economic Development Corp. has
announced its 2006 Community Services Block Grant Scholarship
recipients. The Department of Commerce and Economic Development has
made funds for these scholarships available to income-eligible
individuals of high academic merit or potential. Applicants attend
an Illinois college and reside in Fulton, DeWitt, Logan, Mason,
Menard or Piatt County, which is CIEDC's six-county service area.
The recipients are Kimberly Scheuerman and Elizabeth Porter of Piatt
County, Ross Horn and Raymond Horn of Menard County, Kourtney Hass
of DeWitt County, Amy Bramwell of Mason County, and Kathryn McIntosh
of Logan County. They each received $1,000 to use toward expenses
they will incur in continuing their education.
The recipients are
chosen by the scholarship committee on CIEDC's corporate board.
According to Kathy Shepherd, CIEDC's Community Services Block Grant
director, "It was a real challenge for the board members to choose
the recipients this year because the applicants were so academically
qualified and deserving of this educational grant."
