At its early-June meeting, Altrusa International of Washington C.H. Foundation, Inc., presented its first-ever scholarship to a female graduate of Fayette Christian School, Taylor Brown.
Brown has enrolled at Cedarville University and intends to major in early childhood education. Selected graduates from Miami Trace and Washington high schools will attend upcoming Altrusa meetings to collect their own $600 scholarships.
This $600 scholarship comprised the final funds—literally, the last dollar—earned in the group’s Oct. 2018 “Loving Spoonsful Tasting Luncheon.” The major beneficiaries from that record-setting event were the Fayette County Commission on Aging’s “Meals on Wheels” (senior nutrition), and the Fayette Community Action Commission’s Head Start (early-childhood literacy). Both programs received $2,250 at the start of this year.
Stay tuned to future information in the Record-Herald on the ninth-annual tasting luncheon, scheduled for Oct. 19. “Loving Spoonsful” is by far the most significant fundraiser of the community-service organization known as Altrusa International of Washington C.H.
