Kiwanis Club Raises Scholarship Money in Honor of Anne Grubbs

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) — The Bowling Green Kiwanis Club always helps a few students who go to WKU and now they’ll be helping out even more in honor of a Bowling Green woman.

Today the club announced, they raised $10,000 extra in memory of Anne Grubbs to go to the Kiwanis Education Foundation at WKU.

A tearful Mike Grubbs was on hand to accept the honor raised for his late wife who worked with many young people in the community.

“Our goal is to change the lives of children and Anne lived her entire life doing just that, changing the lives of individuals, but most importantly children of this community. This is a way that we believe can continue to lead to Anne’s legacy for years and years to come by this donation,” said Matt Idlett, President of the Bowling Green Kiwanis Club.

The Kiwanis Club currently gives out four scholarships and with the help of this Anne Grubbs donation, they hope to give more in the future.
