Financial awards available for Wyoming Area seniors joining the military


EXETER — Any Wyoming Area graduating senior planning to join a branch of the armed services, or who has already joined a branch of the military, can receive a monetary award offered by the Exeter American Legion, the West Pittston American Legion, and the West Wyoming American Legion.

The only pre-requisite to qualify for these awards is for the student to present official commitment papers to Mrs. Teddy Rabel, guidance secretary, as soon as possible.

Those commitment papers should be turned in by the scholarship deadline of 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 10.

Those who began the process later should see Mrs. Rabel for the form.

The awards will be presented at the annual scholarship celebration held May 24.

Military branches of the armed services include the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, National Guard, and the Navy.
