Paxton scholarship applications sought

Staff report

The McCracken County Community Career Endowment Inc. Board of Directors is accepting applications for educational assistance from full- or part-time students enrolled or to be enrolled at a postsecondary educational facility or from high school seniors planning to enroll in a postsecondary educational facility.

Applicants must also be of African-American descent residing in McCracken County, and be working on the first undergraduate degree.

MCCCE expects to award up to 10 $1,000 awards for full-time students and/or a combination of awards for part-time students for the 2014-15 academic year to students who display a strong commitment to continuing their postsecondary education and pursuing a career that ensures a sustainable income. Students who are active in both their school and the community are encouraged to apply.

Primary funding for the awards is provided by an endowment administered by the Community Foundation of West Kentucky as established by the late Fred Paxton and wife Peggy Paxton.

Applications and instructions can be downloaded from mccce.org. They also will be available at high school guidance counselors' offices and at the WKCTC Financial Aid office. Call 270-444-6962 with any questions.
