Second annual barbecue dinner to benefit the Wayne Proffitt Memorial Scholarship Fund
The Wayne Proffitt Memorial Scholarship will hold its second annual barbecue dinner at the Wayne Proffitt Agricultural Center on 441 South Saturday, May 7, from 5 to 7 p.m.
Two Proffitt scholarships will be given to Macon County public school seniors whose studies have focused on agricultural education. “It’s to further the education of Macon County youth,” said event organizer Marcia Jones, who added that the amount of the scholarships are contingent upon the funds available. Last year, two $500 awards were given.
