Former school superintendent Wilma Zigmond spoke of the foundation’s history on the Monday morning edition of What’s Your Opinion.
Zigmond said the foundation was started by WVOW’s own Martha Jane Becker.
“Martha Jane had a dream,”Zigmond recalled. “she established the Logan County Charitable and Educational Foundation to provide scholarship money and community grants to give back to people in need in Logan County.”
Zigmond said the foundation now has millions in its coffers to award grants and scholarships.
Students must write a short essay about themselves to be considered. Interested students should consult a school counselor to find out about more scholarships or visit the website at https://loganccef.com/
