Never Too Late for an Education

Tracie Clark, Polly Amy and Kathleen Browne gather for a memorable moment at Hummingbird Heaven Tea Room in Martinsville, Ind. Clarke and Browne were the 2007 recipients of the CFMC's Never Too Late Scholarship for non-traditional students.

One person really can make a difference through the Community Foundation of Morgan County. Just ask Martinsville resident Polly Amy.

In 2003, Polly’s life was in a state of turmoil. She was caring for her husband, Charles, who suffered from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. She was worried about her son, Craig, stationed in Iraq with the National Guard. And, as though these were not enough burdens to bear, Polly was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer.

Despite these major distractions, she decided to reach out to resolve a need in the community.

“In your mind you feel you want to do something to help the world,” Polly said.
