Written by David Green.

New officers were elected at a recent meeting of the Fayette Area Foundation.

Pamela Hibbard will serve as president. Other officers are Connie Wagner, vice president; Sue Williams, secretary and David Metcalf, treasurer.

Amy Metz accepted a position as a Foundation trustee, along with Barbara Bruggeman, Tom Spiess, Sue Schaffner, David Metcalf, Sue Williams, Pamela Hibbard, Connie Wagner and Dee Ferguson.

The Foundation began in 1992 and has awarded one to four scholarships each year to graduating Fayette High School seniors. This year three scholarships will be awarded.

The Foundation has supported many local organizations and projects including the Fayette Opera House, Normal Memorial Library and the Fayette Beautification Project. The group donates annually to the Academic Awards Night to help with the cost of refreshments, and this year Foundation trustees Connie Wagner and Barbara Bruggeman will help serve refreshments.

Gifts and donations are accepted by the Foundation, which is a 501 (c) (3) organization. Funds may be designated if the donor wants the donation used for a particular use.
