August 18, 2015 - A new tradition was unveiled Monday, August 18, 2015 on Center ISD Campus when Will Lucas, Shelby Savings Bank president, removed the cover off of the new 'Shelby Savings Bank Drive' street sign while bank employees and Rotary members watched.
In support of the Rotary Club's Fun for Funds benefit auction which helps provide scholarships to Center ISD graduating seniors, Center ISD donated to the auction "Name that Sign" which gave the winning bidder naming rights to the street connecting Roughrider Drive to Timpson Highway for one year. The street passes in front of the Tennis Courts and Roughrider Stadium. For one year the sign will display Shelby Savings Bank Drive on both ends until next years Fun for Funds Benefit Auction places the item up for someone to claim naming rights.
The Fun for Funds auction was held March 24, 2015 and Shelby Savings Bank won with a $900 bid. The Fun for Funds auction raised over $33,000 for scholarships which is managed by the Catherine Pinkston Roughrider Scholarship Foundation. As of March 2015, the Roughrider Scholarship Foundation (RSF) has presented 1,544 scholarships totaling $1,213,800 to graduating C.H.S. students and is funded by donations, not just from Rotary, but from the community.
The RSF gave out over 100 scholarship to 2015 graduating seniors which wasn't included in the previous total. For more information about the RSF, visit online at http://roughriderscholarship.org/
