Thorium Action Group/Kerr-McGee Chemical Corporation Scholarship Endowment Fund

Established 1997


This fund provides scholarships to graduating high school seniors who reside within West Chicago Community High School District 94 in the State of Illinois.

It is a living legacy that symbolizes the joint effort of the Thorium Action Group, the people of the City of West Chicago, Illinois, their elected representatives, and the Kerr-McGee Chemical Corporation to remove the radioactive thorium contamination from the community.

This fund was established on September 17, 1997 with a generous donation from the Kerr-McGee Chemical Corporation.  Kerr-McGee made the donation in the name of the Thorium Action Group because of the group’s fight to clean up the city.
