MCHS Students Selected for Paxton Scholars Program
Alexander Mayes and Elijah Patrick 
The McCracken County Community Career Endowment, Inc. (MCCCE) proudly announces the selection of the following six African American high school juniors currently enrolled in the Paducah Independent School District or the McCracken County School District as Class X participants in the 2019 Paxton Scholars Program: (Paducah Tilghman)- Jasmine Meadows, Hanna Scott, Tyonia Talley and Tasjiair Jones; (McCracken County)- Elijah Patrick and Alexander Mayes. These six (6) outstanding students were selected from a total of 21 applications submitted by African American Juniors enrolled in the McCracken County and Paducah Independent School Districts.

The Paxton Scholars Program seeks to enhance student self-esteem, parent or guardian advocacy, peer and mentor interaction, maintenance and improvement of academic performance and preparation for college transition, all of which are unique challenges that African American students face. These selected scholars will receive college scholarship funds based on grade-point averages during their junior and senior years of high school and through the first two semesters of college. A college suitable laptop computer will also be presented to all six scholars at the MCCCE Educational Assistance Scholarship Program in April 2020.

MCCCE, a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization, was organized in 2006 after receiving a $1 million donor-directed endowment established at the Community Foundation of West Kentucky by the late Fred Paxton and his wife, Peggy Paxton. In addition to the PaxtonScholars Program, the endowment continues to award scholarships and educational assistance to students who wish to continue their post-secondary educations.

Donations to support the efforts of the MCCCE, Inc. can be made to the Administrator of the Paxton Endowment: The Community Foundation of West Kentucky at P.O. Box 7901, Paducah, Kentucky 42002-7901 or directly to: MCCCE, Inc. at 300 South Third Street, Paducah, Kentucky 42003.
