Virginia Graham

Virginia Graham, a former educator, was fondly remembered by many folks when she passed away in 2003. Mrs. Graham taught 4th grade for over 20 years in the PHS and PBL school systems. The Graham family chose to use her memorial contributions to establish a $500 scholarship to be given to a graduating senior from PBL who plans to enter the education profession. Patty Graham Herges, Virginia’s daughter, recalls, “My mother used to reminisce about her days of attending college at ISNU (now ISU) when financially it was a struggle for her to even have enough money to make a phone call home to her parents. Mom would be so pleased to know that this scholarship is helping a young scholar prepare for their career in education.” The Foundation administers the scholarship for the Graham family.

Our Mission is to acquire and distribute resources for enhancing or supplementing the educational programs for all learners in the Paxton-Buckley-Loda Community Unit #10 School District located in Paxton, Illinois
