Miss Frances would have been proud.
Rep. Ron Lewis presented a $50,000 check to Campbellsville University recently in honor of the late Frances Gaddie Clinkscales. The Frances Clinkscales Endowed Scholarship will be used for nursing students and will be awarded in fall 2009 for the first time.
"God is love," Lewis said, "and there was never anyone who demonstrated more love of God than Miss Frances. When she said 'I love you,' she meant it."
He said Clinkscales was a servant to man, her church and her community.
