Local VFW post awards scholarships to local high school graduates

The local unit of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Mt Holy Cross Minturn VFW Post 10721, is honored to award scholarships to deserving graduating seniors in our local high schools. 

The members of this veteran organization believe strongly in the power and importance of education and strive to give a “lift up” to local students who have been achievers and team players and who have set their sights high for the future. Each scholarship is given in the name of a veteran who has special meaning for that school.
