Benefactors of the Year, 2006
Bluegrass Community and Technical College

Clark County Community Foundation, Winchester
Honored by Bluegrass Community and Technical College

The Clark County Community Foundation is a key player in making higher education possible in Winchester-Clark County.  In 2004, Bluegrass Community and Technical College was awarded a grant from the Foundation to establish the Ralph L. Oliver Scholarship to recognize an outstanding community member from Winchester-Clark County.  Through the Foundation’s continued funding of the scholarship, 13 students from Winchester-Clark County have been able to attend the College each year. The Foundation has played a pivotal role in enabling students to access higher education, and the College is truly grateful for its support.

The Winchester Sun, owned by Schurz Communications, Inc., has played a vital role in the success of Bluegrass Community and Technical College’s Winchester-Clark County Building Fund Campaign.  The newspaper has continuously promoted the need for higher education in Winchester-Clark County and the surrounding region.  Through its extended coverage of the Campaign’s activity, it has encouraged the community to give generously to build a permanent campus in Winchester.  In addition, both The Winchester Sun and Schurz Communications have jointly contributed a significant gift towards construction of the new campus.
