American Legion Funds Two NCC Scholarships
Date posted - September 7, 2016
Sheldon, Iowa — Two northwest Iowa veterans will have an easier time paying for college at Northwest Iowa Community College, thanks to a pair of $1-thousand scholarships from the American Legion.
The NCC Foundation recently received a grant from the American Legion of Iowa Foundation for these scholarships. The funds are to be awarded this fall to NCC students who are also veterans. Jim Rolfes of the American Legion, was on campus recently to present the check to Jan Snyder and Kristi Landis from the NCC Foundation.
The American Legion Foundation was incorporated in 1978 and its purpose was to provide financial assistance to promote Americanism, youth programs, and veteran’s assistance along with community service.
