A local fast-food chain made a generous donation to an area college Friday afternoon.

Ray and Kim Blackburn, owners of the Wendy's in Belpre, presented a check of $17,000 to the Washington State Community College Foundation.

The money will be used for the Wendy's adoption scholarship.

The Blackburn's raised the money by selling key tags.

Belpre Mayor Mike Lorentz and Marietta Mayor Joe Matthews also attended.

Washington State will award the scholarship to one student for the fall semester next year.

Students must be currently or previously in foster care or adopted in the past.

The scholarship deadline is March 15th.
