McCullough Grants Program
The Betty Ann McCullough Fund
A teacher for more than forty years for the North Gibson school system and with Oakland City University, Betty Ann McCullough dreamed of furthering education in Gibson County. She loved to teach and had an interest in encouraging students to develop skills in using the language of mathematics.
In 1997 Betty Ann McCullough died before realizing her dream, but her friends and family created the Betty Ann McCullough Education Fund. The fund addresses the four areas of education that McCullough felt strongly about.
1. Betty Ann McCullough Education Grant
This grant is a scholarship available to graduating seniors of Princeton Community High School who demonstrate outstanding perseverance in mathematics and language arts throughout high school. Applicants must have surpassed expectations as indicated by past performance; intend to continue education in the mathematics field in college or vocational school; and succeeded in overcoming cultural, health and domestic obstacles.
