  • Deadline for McKee loan is May 1

    May 1 is the deadline for the interest-free loan funded by the Ella McKee Foundation through First National Bank.
    Ella McKee was a Fayette Countian who chose to bequeath a large sum of money to establish an ongoing program whereby qualified young people could obtain a post-high-school education.
    The First National Bank of Vandalia was named trustee to create the Ella G. McKee Foundation to invest and reinvest the assets, and disburse the income “solely for educational purposes and no other.”
