Alice Boone Main Memorial Fund


Alice Boone

The Alice Boone Main Memorial Fund was created in 1999 by family and friends to provide post‐secondary scholarships to worthy McGuffey School District graduates in “pursuit of their dreams.”

Alice Boone Main was born on May 24, 1951 and, after graduating from McGuffey High School in 1969, she went on to receive degrees in elementary education, eventually returning to her beloved alma mater as a teacher.

She served as a principal in several area school districts, working last at Claysville Elementary School. Additionally, she served as the Federal Programs Coordinator for the McGuffey School District.

Her friends who initiated this fund commented, “Alice was a “friend, co‐worker, wife, sister and educator. She had a wonderful sense of humor, a variety of interests, and was a friend to many people in the community. Every once in a while, a very special person touches our lives: someone who is kind, bright, and has a sense of promise that makes a difference in our lives. In fact, we can say we are actually better for having known them. Then one day, much too suddenly, they are taken from us. We are left with a deep sense of loss and emptiness. Although Alice is gone, this scholarship will keep her memory alive."
