Scholarship established in honor of community leader

Scholarship in memory of Jim Weaver will help Cass County students

A $10,000 gift will be used to help students in the name of the late Jim Weaver, a longtime leader in Logansport/Cass County education, government and economic development.

Presented by the Cass County Democratic Party on behalf of Weaver’s family to Ivy Tech Community College Kokomo Region, the money will be earmarked for an endowed scholarship.

Weaver was serving as president of both the Logansport Economic Development Association and the Hoosier Heartland Corridor Association at the time of his death in 2004. A member of the Indiana Economic Development Association, the Logan/Cass County Industrial Park Board of Directors and Logan’s Landing Association, he was one of the driving forces behind completing the Hoosier Heartland project. Weaver was a former vice president and investment officer of National City Bank in Logansport.

A longtime active member of the Cass County Democratic Party, Weaver was a four-term member and former president of the Logansport City Council and served as a member and president of the Logansport School Board of Trustees. An alumnus of Purdue University, he was active in the Logansport Rotary Club, the Logansport Civic Players, the Cass County Historical Society, the Cass County Historic Preservation Foundation, the Logansport Cass County Chamber of Commerce and All Saints Parish.

“Jim Weaver was committed to the betterment of our society and exhibited the highest values of the Democratic Party,” said Paul Ulerick, party chairman. “We are truly excited to establish this endowed scholarship. It demonstrates the strong belief by the Democratic Party that it is important to continue your education.”

Former Logansport Mayor Michael Fincher, who helped establish Ivy Tech’s Logansport Campus in the Hoosier Heartland Corridor, said, “Jim would be humbled and proud to know the Cass County Democratic Party has established this scholarship for Cass County students who are attending Ivy Tech Community College.”

Cass County residents who are attending any Ivy Tech campus in the Kokomo Region, have a minimum grade-point average of 2.5 and who are registered voters will be eligible to apply for the $500 scholarship, which may be used for tuition, fees and books.
