WAYNE COUNTY LOCAL DAV CHAPTER 105 SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
By Cornelius Duncan
Monticello, KY (GWN) – After recent hiatus due to COVID-19 pandemic the Wayne County local DAV is proudly encouraging education advancement with the local ROTC program for Wayne County High School ROTC members. The scholarship will be given to an outstanding ROTC member and good standing student with a 3.0 GPA average.
The local Disabled American Veterans Education Scholarship Program was established to provide education scholarships for local Wayne County students attending an accredited college, university, or vocational school in Kentucky. Those full-time students who meet the established guidelines may qualify for a scholarship of $500.00. Part-time students who meet the established guidelines may also qualify for a scholarship. Students who receive other scholarship awards on graduation day will not qualify for this award. ROTC recipients whose names will be announced at the DAV Memorial Day Program will have an opportunity to expand their educational goals and strengthen their self-esteem through participation in the local DAV Scholarship Program.
Funding for this program comes from a designated portion of paid mandates that has been the generous support of our donors who have provided the opportunity for this continued education assistance. Funds for the scholarship will also be sent to college admittance during August 2022. We can all truly make a difference to these outstanding students by encouraging and donating to this cause.
If you would like to donate toward this important endeavor please contact Representative Lea Hammond at the new DAV office in the basement of Monticello City Hall on Wednesdays between 9 am and 3 pm. DAV Commander Jeff Morgan is always available by calling 606-307-8719. All local veterans are encouraged to attend DAV monthly meetings on the first Monday of each month at 6:30 pm at the Wayne County Senior Citizens Building located across from the Judicial Center on Columbia Avenue in Monticello, Kentucky.
