Excellence in Education Celebration

On Wednesday, June 17, 2015 the Chamber of Commerce of Harrison County and the Harrison County Community Foundation hosted their Ninth Annual Excellence in Education Celebration. The celebration, held at Lincoln Hills Christian Church and catered by Bills Catering, honored five Harrison County educators and twenty scholarship recipients.

 Lisa Long, President of the Chamber of Commerce said, "It is always an honor to recognize those students that have worked so hard during their educational career and the educators that dedicate their lives to the education and enrichment of our County's youth." Since May of 1989, the Chamber of Commerce of Harrison County has awarded $71,000 in scholarship funds to graduating Harrison County students.

This year the Chamber awarded four $1,000 scholarships, one in each of the Harrison County School Districts. The scholarship recipients were Drake Mattingly (Corydon Central High School, "The J. Gordon Pendleton/Earl Book Scholarship"); Annabelle Parsons (Lanesville High School); Madeline Rathgeber (North Harrison High School, "The Charles and Rae Davis Walk Scholarship"); and Haley Shaffer (South Central High School).
