49 Darke County High School Graduates Receive HOPE Foundation Scholarships

The HOPE Foundation of Darke County awarded $73,600 in college scholarships to 49 graduates of Darke County high schools. On June 21, the students gathered at the Darke County Educational Services Center to be recognized and receive their checks. Since the foundation started in 1986, a total of $949,166 has been awarded to Darke County students. Money for the scholarships comes from 35 HOPE funds that have been established by individuals, families and businesses in Darke County. Many of the funds are endowed, which means they will provide scholarships indefinitely, and many donors have personalized the name of their funds, creating a legacy in honor of a family member or someone special. For information on starting a fund for a scholarship or community grant, contact president Christy Prakel at 548-HOPE or visit HOPE’s website at As the community foundation of Darke County, the HOPE Foundation receives, administers and distributes charitable gifts for the benefit of Darke County residents.
