MUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. (WBKO) -- A surprise announcement in Muhlenberg County on Thursday revealed a $15,000 endowment is going to support youth leadership at Muhlenberg County High School.

According to Logan Porter, former chamber president, the check was presented during a Chamber of Commerce meeting and the announcement received a standing ovation.

He said the money is from Peggy Williams.

Williams recently retired from her role as Regional President of Old National Bank, where she had worked for more than 40 years.

Porter called Williams a "fixture here in the community" and a "great mentor."

Williams' $15,000 endowment will go toward sponsoring 100 students over the next five years to take part in a youth leadership program.
