[August 03, 2011]  On Tuesday, the Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois announced this year's recipients of the Community Services Block Grant Scholarship. Winners of the scholarship are Kathryn McIntoch of Logan County; Jonah Cooley, Cody Haas and Kelsey Haas of DeWitt County; Keegan Coulter and Jennifer Oney of Mason County; Nathaniel Ed of Menard County; and Randee Fleming, Melinda Dunlap and Glenda Tabor of Piatt County.

The recipients each received $700 at a meeting of the governing board of directors of the Community Action Partnership on July 28. Steve Lobb, board president, and Angela Stoltzenburg, executive director of the agency, presented the awards. The funds will be used toward expenses the students incur by continuing their education.

The recipients are chosen by a scholarship committee made up of members of the agency's governing board.

"It was challenging for the board members to choose the recipients this year," said Kathy Shepherd, Community Action's community services director. "All of the applicants were academically qualified and deserving of this educational grant."

The Department of Commerce and Economic Development made funds for these scholarships available to income-eligible individuals of high academic merit or potential. Applicants attend Illinois colleges and reside in Fulton, DeWitt, Logan, Mason, Menard or Piatt County, which are Community Action's six-county service area.

Community Action is a private, nonprofit organization that serves low-income families and seniors in the six-county area with a variety of services. For more information, visit
