Kansas University: Engineer’s gift to provide minority scholarship help A Kansas University graduate and his wife have developed a scholarship fund for minority students in the KU School of Engineering. Mike Shinn, a 1966 KU graduate in aerospace engineering, and his wife, Joyce, donated $50,000 to the Kansas University Endowment Association. General Electric, where Mike Shinn worked for 30 years before he retired in 1998, will match the $50,000 to create the $100,000 fund. Beginning this fall, the fund will provide eight $3,000 annual scholarships to minority engineering students. The Shinns live in Shaker Heights, Ohio. Mike Shinn has been a member of the Kansas Alumni Association’s national board of advisers and a member of the board of corporate affiliates of the National Society of Black Engineers. ____________________ Earth day: Volunteer brigade takes part in Clinton Lake cleanup Clinton Lake’s parks and boat ramp areas are cleaner today, thanks to about 235 volunteers, Park Ranger Kipp Walters said. The volunteers gathered Saturday for the 18th annual lake cleanup. The cleanup is in conjunction with celebrations for Earth Day, which is today. Volunteers, including Ruth Hughes and her son, Cameron, 10, above, collected everything from cans and bottles to shoes. This year’s group of volunteers was smaller than past years, Walters said. Last year more than 370 participated, he said. Volunteers were treated to a lunch donated by various businesses. ____________________ Award: Tonganoxie to be honored The Kansas Department of Commerce & Housing will honor the city of Tonganoxie with a Community Achievement Award. According to the department, Tonganoxie is being recognized for its achievements during the past several years using state resources. Four other Kansas cities and one county also will be recognized as part of Community Development Month. The city of Tonganoxie used a $713,605 comprehensive development grant from KDOC&H to revitalize its downtown area and provide housing opportunities. The city also received a $400,000 grant to improve its water treatment and distribution services, and an Emergency Shelter grant helped provide a domestic violence and emergency shelter for the community. The award will be presented at 9:30 a.m. Monday at City Hall, 321 S. Delaware.
