Members of Gardner-based Chapter 907 of the Vietnam Veterans of America recently donated $2,000 to the Mount Wachusett Community College Foundation’s Veterans Memorial Scholarship.

“On behalf of Mount Wachusett Community College and the MWCC Foundation, we are most grateful for this generous contribution from our local Vietnam Veterans of America members, and for their continued support of our student veterans,” said Foundation Executive Director Carla Zottoli.

The Veterans Memorial Scholarship was established to assist student veterans and ensure that their service and sacrifices will not be forgotten. Scholarship funds are awarded to new or returning full-time students who were honorably discharged from the U.S. Armed Forces, or are currently serving in the Reserves or National Guard.
