Garden Jubilee

On Saturday, April 29, 2023, the RMC Foundation invites you to join us for the “The Great Jubilee” Garden Jubilee.  This year it will be held at The Kress building with a 1920s theme.  Everyone practice your best “Charleston” and be part of this Jubilation to celebrate our young scholars.  This will be our eighth year to award a deserving high school senior the Martha Vandervoort Memorial Scholarship.  Each year we honor the life of a special person, raise money for an educational scholarship and bring together our community for an evening of camaraderie and hope for future generations.

Proceeds from the event are earmarked to fund the Martha Vandervoort Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship was created to honor the life and legacy of longtime Anniston resident and philanthropist, Martha Vandervoort. The Martha Vandervoort Garden Jubilee is an annual event and each year will award an annual renewable $6,000 scholarship to a graduating senior from Calhoun County. We have now been able to reward eight worthy Scholars and look forward to continuing to support future leaders in our community.

Last year’s recipient is Katelyn Downing, a graduating senior from Jacksonville High School. Katelyn will be attending Jacksonville State University in the fall as a sophomore thanks to her participation in the Jacksonville State University Jump Start Dual Enrollment Program. She will graduate with a 4.0 GPA and 52 college credit hours all while working a part time job and playing on the varsity volleyball team. To add to these accomplishments, Katelyn is also a member of the D.D. Club, a community service organization which has led her to volunteer opportunities with Calhoun County Sports Hall of Fame, Relay for Life, United Cerebral Palsy, and her favorite, the Kiwanis Club’s annual shopping trip for children in need.
Katelyn is a fine example of someone deserving of the Martha Vandervoort Memorial Scholarship.
