V.6. Kevin Daugherty Scholarship
Description:  The Kevin Daugherty Scholarship Certificate of Deposit
Comments:  The CoD issued in 1986 matures every 12 months.  The original interest rate was 6.3%.  I requested any information from FIB&T regarding the person(s) who opened the CoD and named the MCPSD#1 as trustee.  The bank informed me the CoD is old enough that not enough information exists to come to any formal conclusion.  The only information I know about the CoD comes from the multicolored financial sheet "Interest Earned goes to Dollars for Scholars".
Rationale:  The interest rate fell consistently from it's original rate to 0.4%.  The estimated interest fell from $65.41 to $4.15 annually.
