“These scholarships are presented to seniors who have worked hard and excelled academically throughout their high school years. Our board hopes that, with the help of this money, these young people will be able to continue to excel as they further their education, and we are excited to be able to help them do that,” said Lora Williams, president of the Foundation.

Monies for the Lehman, Corya and Springmeyer scholarships are held by the Decatur County Community Foundation. The Arthur Moor and Dollars for Scholars Memorial Scholarships were both made possible when the South Decatur division of Dollars for Scholars closed its chapter and transferred the scholarship monies from its treasury to the Decatur County Community Scholarship Foundation, which will continue to award these memorial scholarships in the future.

The Decatur County Community Scholarship Foundation was formed in 1983 when seven members of the community joined together to raise funds for scholarships for students at North and South Decatur High Schools. Scholarships of no less than $1000 have been presented by the Foundation every year since 1984. Donations to the Foundation may be made at any time, and the Foundation gladly accepts gifts from individuals and estates, including gifts made in honor of or in memory of those who have shown a commitment to the Foundation and the youth of Decatur County.
