Post 41 has awarded academic scholarships to two graduating seniors from Clarke County High School. Each $2,000 scholarship will be paid to the student’s college accounts prior to the beginning of the second semester.
This year’s recipients are Mackie Martin, son Julia Whitehouse of Berryville; and Kendall Benoit, daughter of Travis and Rowena Benoit of Paris. Mackie will attend the University of Virginia and Kendall will attend Virginia Tech.
The scholarship recipients were selected by the high school staff using criteria approved by the Post. Applicants who have a parent who is a veteran or currently serving on active military duty received special consideration in the application process.
