- I plan to complete my undergraduate degree at Friends in two years and then go on to the Physical Therapy graduate program at Wichita State.
- Clifford and Rubye Angleton Scholarship
Gift Amount: $12,000 for three years
The Clifford & Rubye Angleton Scholarship Endowment Fund was established in May 2009, through the Central Kansas Community Foundation – Butler County, for the education of doctors and nurses of Butler County. Clifford and Rubye Angleton were lifelong Butler County residents. Rubye was born and raised on a ranch southeast of Rosalia, Kansas, and attended Rosalia public schools. For many years, she worked for McClure Motor Company in El Dorado as a bookkeeper. Clifford was born in Towanda, Kansas 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. Clifford & Rubye had no children 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.
This scholarship has been instrumental in allowing me to attend a private four year institution. I receive little aid from the government and my parents have two children in college so they are limited in the funds they can supply. This scholarship means I can stay at Friends University and live on campus with my friends.
