BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Though he may be gone, Mason Goodnight continues to have a positive effect on south-central Kentucky.
Mason died suddenly two years ago and his parents Jef and Janet set up the Mason Goodnight Foundation to help other young people achieve their dreams.
One way of assisting local youth was with a $4000 donation to Dishman-McGinnis Elementary School's fourth and fifth-grade Beta Club so that they could go to the National Beta Convention in Louisville next week.
"As teachers, we always try and find ways to give our kids opportunities and this is an experience a lot of kids would never get if it wasn't for this money," said Kayla Rogers, a Beta Club sponsor and fourth-grade teacher. "They get to go and stay in a hotel and spend time with their friends and be in a new city."
This donation will go to help with the expenses for the trip.
The Dishman-McGinnis Beta Club is set to leave for the convention on Wednesday.
