KOKOMO and LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Reservations are being accepted for the Ivy Tech Scholarship Cruise aboard The Madam Carroll on Lake Freeman to benefit Cass County and White County students attending Ivy Tech Community College.

The event is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 7, with boarding beginning at 5:30 p.m. and launch at 6:30 p.m. The evening will include dinner served by the Historic Sportsman Inn, entertainment by the Jhonny & Sallie Show, and a scholarship auction. All proceeds from the cruise will be directed to the Donald H. Heckard Memorial Scholarship or the White County Opportunity Scholarship.

“Thanks to the generosity of Tom Heckard, an Ivy Tech alumnus and owner of the Madam Carroll, we have this wonderful opportunity to raise money for scholarships for Cass County and White County students,” said David Bathe, chancellor of Ivy Tech’s Kokomo and Lafayette Region.

Proceeds from the cruise will be directed to two scholarships. For Cass County students, the Donald H. Heckard Memorial Scholarship was established in 2014 in honor of Don Heckard, a well-known Cass County farmer, businessman and civic leader who was very instrumental in helping to build the beautiful Ivy Tech campus in Logansport. The White County Opportunity Scholarship is a new scholarship to benefit students from White County attending the College’s White County Instructional Center or Lafayette campus. The Ivy Tech Community College White County Instructional Center, at 1017 O’Connor Boulevard in Monticello, was dedicated in the spring of 2009.
