LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 11, 2003) -- Frank A. Rogers III, president of the Ale-8-One Bottling Company in Winchester, Ky., recently announced that Ale-8-One has donated $100,000 to Lexington Community College in memory of Carolyn A. White.

White, who served as executive assistant to Rogers and as a member of the board of directors, passed away August 27, 2003, just six weeks after being diagnosed with lung cancer.

“Carolyn was very interested in the idea of LCC expanding in Winchester, as the only college in the community. To further higher education in Clark County is a living memorial to her,” said Rogers.

“I'm grateful to Ale-8-One for its kind generosity and congratulate the highly respected soft drink company for having the foresight to know that an investment in LCC is an investment in the future of Winchester and Clark County. This generous gift is a key boost to our capital campaign to make a new campus a reality,” said LCC President Jim Kerley.

LCC has proposed the construction of a 2,500-square-foot classroom building for the Winchester-Clark County campus complete with classrooms, labs and a day-care facility to be located in the Industrial Park. The Winchester-Clark County Industrial Authority gave LCC the option to build a 20.36-acre site in phase 6 of the Industrial Park. The land is the largest single gift ever to LCC.

The Ale-8-One Bottling Company is Winchester’s oldest manufacturing company and this is the largest gift ever given by the 100-year-old company.
