The Owensboro Lions Club annually awards five (5) $1000 scholarships to Brescia University, Kentucky Wesleyan College, Owensboro Community Technical College, Western Kentucky University Owensboro and Wendell Fosterís Campus for Developmental Disabilities. At our August 4 2020 meeting, our club presented the $1000 scholarship money to the five previously mentioned institutions. The four colleges will use the money to provide financial assistance to students while Wendell Fosterís Campus uses the money to help provide children and adults having developmental disabilities with the tools, education, therapies, and support through a wide array of services including outpatient therapies, day services, assistive technology resources, transportation, and residential options.
Congratulations to each of these institutions for its outstanding contributions to our community.
