Central Kentucky Community Foundation Adds New Scholarships For 2023

The Central Kentucky Community Foundation announced several new scholarships for 2023. One of those is the Feleshia Denham Memorial Scholarship established by her family. “We are honored today to be part of a collective community effort that’s helping to fund a scholarship in memory of Felishia Denham who was the beloved wife of Chris and mother of Emily – a huge part of our community. And as part of that tribute, we’re going to be able to honor her life forever with a scholarship that it’ll award to students who represent the things that were important to her and her family,” stated CKCF President Davette Swiney. 
Emily Denham, Felishia’s daughter, said it was nice to know that students will be able to have opportunities to carry on her mother’s tradition of excellence. Chris Denham was thankful for the donations that will allow his late wife to continue to contribute to the community in a positive light.“I’m just so humbled by the people of this community. I began working with Davette Swiney at the Central Kentucky Community Foundation to establish a scholarship to honor Felishia’s legacy. During that process I learned the Hardin County Bourbon Club in partnership with Give270 hosted a raffle that yielded $15,000 dollars. Between those generous donations, as well as a donation from Emily and I, we established an endowment to support the Felishia Denham Memorial Scholarship fund. The goal for me is to make sure that Felishia’s legacy continues along the same trajectory as she lived her life. That is supporting and helping others. I don’t ever want her or the person who she was to be forgotten.” Feleshia Denham died in a tragic accident at a Nelson County airport in August.
Scholarship Central, the Foundation’s platform, offers students a way to apply for more than 150 community scholarships with one application.
