CSM (Ret) Teresa Meagher, a member of Richland County (South Carolina) Post 6 American Legion and American Legion Riders, presents a recognition plaque to COL (Ret) Robert L. Manning, President, Adjutant General’s Corps Regimental Association (AGCRA), in appreciation of the AGCRA’s donation in support of the 2018 American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund.
The American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund is a needs based scholarship designed to fulfill a financial gap after all federal and state scholarships and grants are used. Eligible recipients are children of U.S. military members who died while on active duty on or after September 11, 2001, and children of Post-9/11 Veterans who have a combined VA disability rating of 50 percent or higher. The American Legion professionally manages the scholarship fund with 100 percent of donations going into the fund. The AGCRA’s contribution to the 2018 American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund greatly helped to continue the legacy of providing scholarships to children of our fallen and disabled military Veterans.
