The Cadiz Rotary Club gives $30,000 a year to pay for students’ involvement in the program, said Rotary Club member Dr. Scott Sutherland. At last Tuesday’s meeting, he said the Education Committee decided to support more students and have them attend Murray State’s Hopkinsville Regional Campus. But he went on to say that it isn’t only tuition that’s paid for.
“Also, that group has available to them the ACT stipend money … Rotary pays all tuition and registration costs for all the students participating in the Thoroughbred Academy program for Trigg County,” Dr. Sutherland said. “The kids … can buy their books with the stipend.”
There are 19 seniors and 26 juniors from Trigg County participating this year, with juniors going all day on Wednesday and seniors going all day on Monday, and all of them take two classes, said Trigg County High School Principal Shannon Burcham.
