Howard Amidon led the creation of the Rotary Foundation of Klamath County during his two year tenure as president. In the early days of the Foundation, World War II veterans and survivors of the great depression made significant donations to the Foundation with the hopes of making life better for the next generation.. Through contributions made by Rotarians and non-Rotarians, the endowment has grown and disbursed over $160,000.00 to needy, academically capable students.
This year seven $1800.00 scholarships will be offered to graduating seniors.
