Charitable Dreams for Community Needs
The Carroll County Community Foundation, a Fund of the Community Foundation of Howard County, Inc. was created August 29, 1997, by action of the Foundation's Board of Directors.
That action means the Foundation now serves donors in Howard, Clinton and Carroll Counties. Carroll County operates through a 'County Services Committee' comprised of Carroll County residents. This committee is responsible for asset development and the review of grants and distributions. The committee receives staff and technical support from the Community Foundation of Howard County. In addition, representatives from Carroll County serve on the Board of Directors of the Foundation.
2013 Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Recipient Announced
One Carroll County student has been named a recipient of a four-year, full-tuition scholarship as the Carroll County Community Foundation 2013 Lilly Endowment Community Scholar.
Tallis Bowers, son of Troy and Alice Bowers, will receive full tuition to the Indiana college of his choice and up to $900 per year for required books and equipment.
Tallis, a Carroll High School student, participates on the cross country, track and field, and wrestling teams. He is a volunteer at St. Joseph Hospital and is a high school office worker and teacher’s aide. Tallis is the president of Key Club and a mentor through Cougar Pals. He plans to attend Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology to study mathematical physics.
This is the 16th year that the Lilly Endowment has funded the Community Scholars program. A committee of volunteers evaluated the applications and selected the four finalists who were interviewed by the Carroll County Community Foundation board. There were 19 Carroll County students who applied for the scholarship.
The Foundation recognized the achievements of the three finalists with $1,000 scholarships. They include Courtney Benefiel from Carroll High School, daughter of James and Deena Benefiel; Shelbi Fisher from Carroll High School, daughter of Kendall and Jodi Fisher; and Mariah McCauslin from Delphi Community High School, daughter of James McCauslin and stepdaughter of Nicole McCauslin.
