    Judges had a difficult time selecting the 2009 Little Miss and Little Master of Scott County at the competition conducted Sunday, July 12, in McClain Hall at Scottsburg High School.
    Six fairly well-behaved young men were in the Little Master competition, while 12 of the prettiest little girls were led on stage by 2008 Miss Scott County Fair Queen Brooklyn Young.
    The contest was filled with chuckles and claps of approval and support by proud family members and friends of the four-, five- and six-year-olds entered in the contest. This year, the contest was held after the 2009 Miss Scott County Fair Queen pageant, and organizers were the ladies of the Pilot Club of Scott County.
    After each child was interviewed by emcee Brittany Banister, judges tackled the task of selecting the new Little Miss and Master as well as runners-up for both titles.
    Kailee Danielle Campbell, a sweet little blonde and the six-year-old daughter of Kim Jones and Josh Campbell, received the Little Miss title, while Bentley Noah McCrady, a handsome lad of four and son of Erica McCrady, was selected as the Little Master.
    Their runners-up were Kyleigh Renee Stover, 4, daughter of Melanie and Denny Robbins and Mark Stover, and Wyatt Scott Zellers, 4, son of Carla and Scott Zellers.

Forever Tree Society program provides opportunity to keep someone’s memory alive PDF Print E-mail

    When Pat Bridge of Scottsburg heard about the new Forever Tree Society program at the Scott County Community Foundation, she immediately knew she wanted to do something in memory of her parents, Laurence and Myrtle Bridge.
    They were lifelong residents and farmers in Johnson Township, Scott County. Myrtle was a charter member of the Scott Memorial Hospital Guild and Laurence was a committee member of the Agriculture Stabilization Office for many years.
    They were both members and very active in the Pisgah Methodist Church. “Honest, family oriented, hardworking and Christians,” says Pam Mosley, Pat’s only child and Laurence and Myrtle’s only grandchild.
    After learning more information about the Forever Tree Society, Pat decided to establish the Laurence and Myrtle Bridge Memorial Fund. She likes the concept that because of the unrestricted gift, the board can decide where the money is best needed. She was also able to participate in the matching funds program that the Foundation Board of Directors offered as an incentive to donors. Through Sept. 30, the Foundation is offering $25,000 in matching funds for the program.

The grants may be used for any charitable purpose in the areas of community service, social service, education, health, the arts, environment and entrepreneurship. The Foundation has awarded over $2.3 million in grants and scholarships to the community since being established in 1997.

In addition, the Board has agreed to provide up to $25,000 in matching funds for its new Forever Tree Society memorial and tribute program.
   The Foundation also has almost $14,000 that it may award from its unrestricted funds for its competitive grants cycle, including the Addie Mae Graham Memorial Fund, the Lauren Graham Memorial Fund, Dr. William and Diann Scott Memorial Fund, John and Janice Martin Unrestricted Endowment Fund, Scott County Memorial Fund and Scott County Immediate Response Fund.
    All charitable organizations and causes are invited to submit proposals for the competitive process. There is no limit on the amount organizations may apply for this year.
    “We are very pleased to be able to open our grants cycle to the community this year, especially with the situation in our economy,” said Connie Kenninger, grants committee chairperson. “Our committee always looks forward to reviewing the creative ideas on how organizations are making an impact in our community, and we are excited to provide an opportunity to help make that difference.”
    Applications are due Monday, July 20 at 3 p.m. Interviews to the finalists will be conducted in August.
