SCHOLARSHIPS - AMVETS National Sad Sacks of Mount Vernon marked its 34th year of supporting Rend Lake College students by recently selecting Cassie Garrett of Benton and Ashlee Murray of Pinckneyville as their 2011-2012 scholarship recipients. This event marks the organization's 41st RLC Foundation scholarship awarded. Both students are nursing majors- one requirement of the scholarship - and due to graduate in the spring. Recipients are given special scholarship consideration if they or a family member are active or retired from the military forces. SADS is one of the RLC Foundation's longest enduring scholarships.
