From THE BETTER CLARKSDALE FOUNDATION
by Marin Reddick
In keeping with its tenant of youth mentorship, the Better Clarksdale Foundation would like to take this opportunity to recognize the Clarksdale High school Class of 1985 for its efforts in supporting Clarksdale’s youth in continuing education.
During the halftime of the inaugural “Blues Bowl” this past October, which featured the Clarksdale football wildcats versus the Coahoma County Red Panthers, a one-thousand-dollar scholarship award was presented to Superintendent Dennis Dupree for a deserving senior attending college in the fall of 2019.
Dr. Eurmon Hervey, c/o ’85 president, envisions this award becoming a permanent addition to the benevolent scholarships and grants given yearly to Clarksdale High School graduates. “We want this award to grow exponentially”, says Dr. Hervey “adding as much alumni participation as possible.”
With that being said, the Clarksdale High school Class of 1985 hear by issues a challenge to any and all alumni classes to enter a fundraising contest to benefit our beloved children. The class that raises the most verified funds gets bragging rights for a year, but the students will remember us for a lifetime!
