Wilbur & Randy Rutherford Foundation Makes $20,416 Donation to North Florida Community College Foundation

Deadline to apply for 2015 Wilbur & Randy Rutherford Foundation Scholarship is April 24

MADISON, FL – The Wilbur & Randy Rutherford Foundation was established in memory and honor of its namesakes Wilbur and Randy Rutherford with the intent to help Madison County families pay for college. Its Foundation Board members (past and present) are Pete Cashwell, Donnie Waldrep, Walter Copeland, Tim Sanders, Terry Olive, Bill Hamrick, Ray Griffin, Lee Cherry and Dan Rutherford. The Board began assisting with the annual Rutherford “father and son” cookout, later known as the Rutherford Foundation annual dinner and gun raffle.

This annual event became the Rutherford Foundation’s sole fundraiser, with proceeds benefitting academic scholarships for Madison County High School (MCHS) students in need of financial aid due to life altering occurrences such as catastrophic illness, death of a loved one, or circumstances that otherwise create a hardship for the student to reach their educational goals. The Wilbur & Randy Rutherford Foundation Scholarship is awarded annually to a MCHS senior planning to attend North Florida Community College (NFCC). The scholarship application requires a 250-word essay outlining the student’s situation and educational goals and must be submitted by April 24 to the guidance counselor’s office at MCHS. The scholarship is awarded in May, with award amount based on need.

On behalf of the Rutherford Foundation, Gene and Teresa Rutherford along with Lindsey Rutherford Jones and Kristen Rutherford Tuten presented North Florida Community College Foundation with a check for $20,416.33 on Feb. 27. These funds were raised by the efforts of the Rutherford Foundation Board together with countless family and friends. The donation has been added to the existing Wilbur and Randy Rutherford Scholarship at NFCC.

“The Rutherford family would like to thank the Rutherford Foundation’s Board of Directors, the NFCC Foundation for its continued assistance, and our friends and supporters throughout the community for their hard work and numerous donations of their time, contributions of food for the annual event, tickets for the gun raffle and of course, their monetary donations, said Teresa Rutherford. “It is due to the efforts of many that this tradition continues.” 

The NFCC Foundation, Inc. is a separate, not-for-profit, IRS approved 501©(3) corporation chartered to acquire and receive gifts that support educational programs and help provide financially for the educational needs of NFCC students. Scholarships are awarded three times a year to correspond with the College’s summer, fall and spring terms.

“The generosity and support of our community, such as that extended by the Wilbur & Randy Rutherford Foundation, allows the NFCC Foundation to help students not only in Madison, but throughout the NFCC service district,” said Dr. Cheryl James, Executive Director of Development and External Affairs. “NFCC greatly appreciates the donation made by the Rutherford Foundation. We are proud to continue this partnership that makes such a difference for the MCHS students that receive the scholarship each year.”

Partnership opens new scholarship opportunities for Hamilton County students

PotashCorp-White Springs has made a $25,000 donation to the North Florida Community College Foundation as part of its continuing goal to invest in, support and improve the quality of life in its community.

Williams presented the check to NFCC President John Grosskopf and Dr. Cheryl James, NFCC Executive Director of Development and External Affairs, on Dec. 12 at the NFCC campus in Madison, Fla. Hamilton County Superintendent of Schools Thomas P. Moffses, Jr. was also on campus for the check presentation.

PotashCorp-White Springs has been a long-time supporter of education and training opportunities at NFCC. Traditionally, a PotashCorp-White Springs Scholarship (formerly PCS Scholarship) has been awarded to an eligible Hamilton County High School graduate annually through the NFCC Foundation to help cover the cost of tuition, books and fees. Scholarship awards were granted based on students’ GPA, character and involvement in community activities. The scholarship’s focus will now be specifically geared toward assisting Hamilton County students enrolled in STEM related programs at the College that meet set criteria aligned with PotashCorp’s core values and mission.
