A Memorial Nursing Scholarship Fund was established at the 1989 VFW State Convention, held at King of Prussia, PA. This fund was in Memorial of Jack Barger, Sr., Department Commander, 1987-88, who passed away during his term of office.
A $500.00 scholarship was awarded in 1990 and over the past 20 years the amount and number of scholarships awarded has increased to six (6) $1,000.00 scholarships per year.
There have been various fundraising efforts made over the years but the two main efforts have been requesting donations from VFW posts and the Nursing Scholarship Golf Scramble.
We hope to see you there!
