The Community Foundation in conjunction with the Riley Festival awarded Paige Carroll, a senior at Mt. Vernon High School, the 2012 Philip R. Hollenbaugh Memorial Award during the Riley Festival Awards Program. Paige was selected the recipient of this award for her entry in the Riley Festival Youth Photography Contest, and the theme of this year’s contest was “A Colorful World.”
The Philip R. Hollenbaugh Memorial Endowment Fund, named in memory of local photographer Phil Hollenbaugh and administered by the Hancock County Community Foundation, also provides a $300 to grant to the recipient’s school, Mt. Vernon High School, for photography education.
2012 marks the Community Foundation’s celebration of working with caring individuals, families, and organizations for 20 years. Our mission is to create or grow existing permanent funds called endowments. These funds generate income that is distributed in the form of grants and scholarships to enrich and enhance life in Hancock County, as well as support the donor’s favorite charitable causes, both at home and afar forever. HCCF has granted over $8 million since its inception in 1992.
