Post 80 Veteran's Scholarship
The Fourth Pillar of the American Legion is Children & Youth
After being established in 1919 the WWI veterans did not focus on themselves but on the children and youth of America. They knew that children were made orphans by the war, and that many had little chance to succeed without help. The slogan they coined resonates today: "A Square Deal for Every Child." Millions of dollars have since been raised and innumerable hours have been volunteered by Legionnaires, in order to help children who are sick or in need, or simply looking for opportunities to achieve their goals. The American Legion is still advocated on their behalf today.
The Veterans of The Tanguay - Magill American Legion Post 80 are very committed to the development of Enfield’s youths and have established a College Scholarship Fund to help one graduating senior from each town high school (Enfield & Enrico Fermi) who is planning to further their education will be awarded a $250 dollar College Scholarship.
