The Cadiz Rotary Club is looking to offer a $600 matching grant to up to four teachers per semester that are interested in going back to school and teaching dual credit courses.

At Thursday night’s Trigg County Board of Education meeting, Trigg County School Superintendent Travis Hamby said the Cadiz Rotary Club wants to give high school students the opportunity to take dual credit courses at a reduced cost.

“Over the last couple of months, we’ve been working with Rotary about how we could partner together to provide great opportunities for our students at the high school level when it comes to dual credit opportunities,” said Hamby.

By a vote of 3 – 0, the school board approved a partnership with the Rotary Club on this matter. Board members LaVern Baker and JoAlyce Harper were absent.

Hamby says the Rotary Club is also offering students that meet CPE (Council on Postsecondary Education) benchmarks a $210 scholarship that would cover half of the cost of a Hopkinsville Community College class, and that HCC, in partnership with the Rotary Club, has offered to decrease the cost even more if the dual-credit courses were taught at Trigg County High School by TCHS teachers.
