Calhoun Community College Foundation has received a $25,000 scholarship endowment in honor of the late Walter McGlocklin, a retired lineman of Athens Utilities, who spent 30 years on the job.
The scholarship, which is endowed over a five-year period, was given by Stan and Nancy McDonald, McGlocklin’s son-in-law and daughter. Stan McDonald is a Calhoun Foundation board member.
In addition, the couple obtained a bucket truck for Calhoun’s Lineworker Program, from Decatur Utilities. The bucket truck will expand the training opportunities for students enrolled in Calhoun’s Pre-Apprentice Lineworker Program.
