This summer, 25 different charitable organizations, scholarships and endowments are participating in the Putnam County Community Foundation Share the Dream program. The fundraising program offers proportionally awarded grant prizes to participants who receive at least 10 donations of $25 or more between May 1 and Aug. 31. Each of the 25 organizations will be highlighted in this series.

The primary purpose of the Reelsville Alumni Scholarship Fund is to provide scholarships to eligible graduates of South Putnam High School who live west of U.S. 231 in Warren Township or in Washington Township to attend a regionally accredited college or university or a state-approved professional, vocational, technical or business school full-time.

The current goal is to continue to help college students with educational costs by growing their endowment and seeing it prosper into the future.

The Reelsville Alumni first established a scholarship after it was suggested by James D. Thomas who served as a chairman and treasurer of the scholarship committee.

Thanks to the efforts of James Thomas and the Reelsville Alumni, students in our community are given the opportunity to expand their education.

Anyone with a connection to the Reelsville community and interested in supporting education for deserving students should consider donating to the Reelsville Alumni Scholarship Endowment.

Donations will not only impact current students, but will ensure that this scholarship impacts students in the future.
