The Killeen ISD school board is scheduled Tuesday night to approve $71,000 in scholarships to help 20 graduating seniors attend college this fall, according to the agenda posted online.

The money comes from endowments to the school district from Parrie Haynes, Franklin and Emily Pratt, Maude Moore Wood, Ira Cross, Jr. and Amanda Ware. The 20 recipients of the scholarships will be determined later in the year.

The board will also hold an executive session beginning at 4:30 p.m. and will then reconvene in public session at 6. The meeting will be held at district headquarters at 200 N. W.S. Young Drive in Killeen.

The scholarship amounts for the 20 recipients will range from $2,500 to $5,000 each.

In other business, the school board will vote on:

Possible action pertaining to Superintendent John Craft’s contract renewal, extension and compensation.
