“We only have $3,000 to go. We need your help to do that,” said Katie Windham, club member. “We hope you will not only purchase tickets to the banquet but also consider a donation toward the funding of the scholarship.

“We can’t do this without your support. The sooner we fund the scholarship … the sooner we are sending a Marengo County high school graduate to Auburn University.”
