Mattingly Award

The Kewanee Schools Foundation announces a new monetary award has been established for Kewanee High School seniors who will attend Illinois College in Jacksonville, Illinois.

Dr. Mattingly is a retired superintendent of schools and currently lives in Utica, Illinois.

The senior must have demonstrated good character and leadership qualities during their school activities and/or community service, and preference will be given to students with financial need, student council participation and/or written intent to participate in athletics at Illinois College.

This year’s recipients of $500 each are:
