Bedford VFW Post 8401 hands out scholarships


 

BEDFORD — The Richard K. Harvell Post 8401 of the Veterans of Foreign Wars recently awarded scholarships to nine local students.

Post Commander Gary Backus noted the academic and community service achievements as well as the courses of study and plans of the students during the July 8 ceremony at the Old Town Hall.

More than 40 family and post members gathered to honor the awardees.

The post's scholarship program was initiated in 1992 to honor the memory of past All State Post Commander George T. Wiggin and expanded in 2005 to also honor the memory of past All State Post Commander Margaret "Peggy" Rice, the first woman so honored in the New Hampshire VFW.

They are awarded to a child or grandchild of a post member, a veteran, or a Bedford resident.

Since the program's inception, the post has awarded more than $32,000 in scholarships and educational grants.
