[August 21, 2008]  Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois is proud to announce its 2008 Community Services Block Grant Scholarship recipients: Amber Warmbier of Piatt County, Heather Skovronski of Menard County, Kourtney Hass of DeWitt County, Christina Peltier of Mason County, Matthew Howe of Fulton County, and Kathryn McIntosh and Jennifer Carroll of Logan County. They each received $1,000 to use toward expenses they will incur while continuing their education.

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

The recipients are chosen by a scholarship committee on the governing board of the Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois.

Kathy Shepherd, Community Action's community service director, stated, "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. Community Action wishes all the scholarship recipients good luck in their future academic endeavors."

Community Action serves low-income residents and seniors of central Illinois in many capacities, including the community service program, energy assistance, weatherization services, senior nutrition and transportation, homemaker program, foster grandparents, a revolving small business loan program, and Head Start.
