Ris­ing Sun Cham­ber do­nates $3,500 to schol­ar­ship


— The Ris­ing Sun Cham­ber of Com­merce demon­strated its com­mit­ment to sup­port­ing higher ed­u­ca­tion with a $3,500 dona­tion to the Ce­cil Col­lege Foun­da­tion on Mon­day, Oct. 8. The cham­ber’s con­tri­bu­tion to the Ris­ing Sun Cham­ber of Com­merce En­dowed Schol­ar­ship Fund pro­vides fi­nan­cial sup­port for stu­dents in need.

The cham­ber of com­merce raised funds dur­ing the an­nual Ris­ing Sun Sun­fest held in June. This year’s fes­ti­val fea­tured ex­hi­bi­tions by Ox­ford Dance Stu­dio, Rus­sell’s Dance and Ba­ton Stu­dio, Ce­cil Dance Cen­ter, and Ris­ing Sun Mar­tial Arts. There were also pup­pet shows, street lamp singers, a pie eat­ing con­test, and a com­mu­nity tug-of-war com­pe­ti­tion.

“I am on my own pay­ing for col­lege, and I work at a lo­cal gro­cery store to help with ex­penses. So, this schol­ar­ship is im­por­tant as it means I can at­tend Ce­cil Col­lege in hopes of cre­at­ing a fu­ture for my­self,” said Bre­ana Smith, a 19-year-old sopho­more and a grad­u­ate of Ris­ing Sun High School.
