Cory Warren Scholarship Fund created to honor former SIU grad assistant

    The Cory Warren Scholarship Fund has been created in honor of Cory Warren, former Southern Illinois University graduate assistant football coach. Warren died in a tragic car accident earlier this month. The scholarship fund is set up to provide financial assistance to one graduate of Warren’s alma mater, Uniontown (Kan.) High School, looking to attend college.

    The fund is headed up by Warren’s former high school football coach and close family friend, Chad McKinnis. All donations to the fund, big or small, are appreciated. The fund was initially set up through Konantz-Cheney Funeral Home and has been transferred to:

    Union State Bank
    204 Sherman Street
    Uniontown, KS 66779
    (620) 756-4305

    For more information on the scholarship fund, contact Chad McKinnis at (620) 224-4166.
