A scholarship has been established at East Central Community College in Decatur in memory of a longtime Scott County educator, Huey G. Stone.
Stone was a principal at Lake High School who retired in 1999 following 32 years of service. He was a resident of Lake from 1961 until his death in 2013.
The scholarship was established by family, friends and former students of Mr. Stone in honor of “his love for education".
The recipient of the Huey G. Stone Memorial Scholarship will be selected annually by the ECCC Scholarship Committee.
To be considered for the scholarship, applicants must be a graduate of Lake High School; have a minimum 2.5 grade point average entering ECCC; must be a full-time student at ECCC and taking classes with an emphasis in education; and must possess leadership qualities. Preference will be given to applicants with a financial need.
