The Betty Ann McCullough Education Fund was created in 1998 to support educational endeavors in Gibson County. After Betty Ann McCullough’s death in 1997, friends and family created the fund in memory of Mrs. McCullough, who had been an educator for the North Gibson School Corporation for more than 40 years, had taught at Oakland City University, and was a strong supporter of education in her community. Along with a number of other civic memberships, Mrs. McCullough was a board member of the Gibson County Community Foundation.
