The Clifford & Ruby Angleton Scholarship Endowment was established in May 2009.
The Community Foundation is honored to represent the endowment they wished to establish upon their passing. They specified a desire for the scholarships to be for the education of doctors and nurses of Butler County.
Cliff and Rubye Angleton were lifelong Butler County residents. Rubye was born and raised on a ranch southeast of Rosalia. She attended Rosalia public schools and for many years worked for McClure Motor Company in El Dorado as a bookkeeper. Her grandfather and grandmother homesteaded the Gray Ranch. Rubye came from a family of five children.
Clifford Angleton was born in Towanda and attended Towanda public schools. He, likewise, worked for McClure Motor Company. The Angletons later decided to go into business for themselves and opened the Angleton Kunkel Garage at 347 North Main in El Dorado, which later became the Angleton Garage and still is known by that name today. The Angeltons had no chidlren and lived frugally all their lives. It was their desire that their thrift would aid in the education of the future doctors and nurses of Butler County.
The community spirit the Angletons lived by will live on through this charitable gift.
