WHITLEY COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - Delmar Mahan, of Corbin, died Friday morning surrounded by friends and family.
Mahan was a long-time Whitley County School Board Member, former Chairperson, former Kentucky School Board Member of the Year and President of the Kentucky School Board Association.
Tim Crawford says Mahan's family asks that instead of flowers, people make donations to the Jimmy Crawford Education Memorial Fund.
The Jimmy Crawford Memorial Fund is a scholarship through the Whitley County Board of Education. This $75,000 scholarship is awarded to 10 Whitley County High School seniors every year since it was established. The scholarships are funded per diem from Whitley County School Board members for each meeting they attend.
Crawford says the Mahan family will be notified of each donation made.
Donations should be made payable to the Jimmy Crawford Education Memorial Fund.
Donations should be mailed to P.O. Box 1206, Corbin, Kentucky 40702.
