In 2006, Fred and Peggy Paxton started a scholarship to help pay for the college tuition of African American students in McCracken County.

Fourteen years later, we are taking look at the McCracken County Community Career Endowment to see how it has shaped the lives of its participants.

Throughout the month of February, WPSD Local 6 and The Paducah Sun will be profiling just a few of the students who have received scholarships.

You’ll be able to see WPSD’s stories below.

Information on the scholarship, including how qualifying students can apply, is also available down below.
