CARTERVILLE – The Leathernecks Motorcycle Club of Southern Illinois continued its quest to give back to the community last week, making what’s become an annual $250 donation to John A. Logan College for the purpose of an academic scholarship.

The award is presented to the most qualified Marine Corps veteran enrolled in classes at the college so that he or she may apply the money toward tuition, books or fees.

This year’s recipient is Michael Moreno of Marion. He was chosen from three qualified candidates.

The Leathernecks volunteer their time at the Anna Veterans’ Home, VA Medical Center in Marion and Marine Corps League’s Toys for Tots program.

Stacy Holloway, Director of Scholarships and Alumni Services at Logan, said the college is grateful to the club for its effort in helping to defray one student’s cost.

“No amount is too small and is much appreciated,” she said.
