Arenzville native nominated for scholarship
Taylor Hancock of Arenzville was named the female Illinois nominee for the Samsung American Legion Scholarship. Her application will compete with 99 others from across the nation for a $20,000 scholarship.
The scholarship was created by Samsung to show its appreciation for US veterans who participated in the Korean War. This scholarship is only available to students who have attended American Legion Auxiliary Boys or Girls State for the week, and who are direct descendants of US veterans that served during a specific time frame. Scholarship winners are selected based on academic record, involvement in school and community activities, community service, and financial need.
