If you were not able to read the Daily Journal on Friday, September 3, then here is the big announcement that has been so hard to keep to ourselves!
The Clark Pleasant Education Foundation now how a new scholarship in the name of the Doub family. The Doub family has made this $90,000 scholarship possible as a tribute for their family past and the generations to come. This new endowment will allow us to award a four-year $1,000 scholarship to any student with the same values that the Doub family holds dear. This not only leaves a great legacy behind for the Doub family, but it impacts the lives of future students. Who knows how many lives those students will impact in return?
No. The Doub family is doing so much more than meets the eye. They are causing a positive ripple effect that will last far longer then them. And isn't this how lives are changed?
So why does Whiteland mean so much to the Doub family?
Many of the descendants of the Doub family call Whiteland schools their alma mater. The land personally farmed by ancestor David Edwin Doub (1855-1933) is now where the brand new Ray Crowe Elementary School and Clark Pleasant Middle School rests. Grassy Creek Elementary School is where Mary (Boner) Doub's (1861-1933) family homestead was located.
David and Mary's five children (Arnold, Virgil, Harry, Harley, and Frank) all graduated from Whiteland Schools and led lives thereafter full of all five characteristics that the recipients of the scholarship must uphold.
Is what made the Doub family...simply...the Doub family.
We give thanks and recognition for this legacy and generous giving.
We give thanks for the Doub family.
We may never see with our own eyes the changes, chain reactions, or ripple effects this will cause in the lives of future students and everyone they come into contact with on their own journey through life. We can, however, know that there is no act of giving yourself that doesn't come without good.
Thank you, Doub family. May your family name live on.
