Anthony and Linda (Price) Nunn have made a multi-year commitment to provide an annual $30,000 scholarship to a Collinsville High School graduate who displays high academic achievement, school involvement and a strong work ethic in and out of the classroom. They want their financial support to enable the student to “take an experience they might not have had the chance to take.”
Linda (Price)Nunn is a 1983 graduate of Collinsville High School. She has fond memories of her years at CHS where she was a four-year member of cheerleading(basketball, football and soccer), a Thespian, member of Latin Club, Student Council and Science Club. She also participated on the soccer and track teams.
“Collinsville High School was very impactful for me,” she said, “My husband and I want to help change the life of one senior. The scholarship is for students that work hard, have good grades, and are active participants in school activities and clubs.”
Mrs. Nunn intends for the scholarship to help a student reach for their dream school by providing additional financial support that helps make their goals more attainable.
The Linda (Price) Nunn scholarship is to be awarded before May college commitment deadlines, to help the student in their choice of school. The money will be available for tuition and room and board,and will be administered by the Collinsville Area Community Foundation. The funds may be used over four years as needed.
