June 24, 2015 -- The Clinton County Community Foundation has awarded 74 scholarships and renewals from 19 funds to Clinton County students with an approximate value of $250,000 including the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship. The students were recognized at a Scholarship Reception held on June 11 at Arborwood in Frankfort, Ind. Parents, donors, educators, community volunteers and leaders also attended the event in recognition of the efforts of the students.
