The Marengo American Legion Post 192 invited special guests to their June meeting. Elliot Rosenbeck, graduate of Marengo Community High School, and his parents, Linda and Dan, joined Legion members to receive a $1000 scholarship to continue his education. Elliot has yet to declare a major. “I have already been accepted at McHenry County College and will solidify a career choice while studying there,” he said. “Right now I am split between a career in Information Technology and Culinary. However, the courses I plan to take will provide me with knowledge to decide between the two.
“I am completely independent financially while furthering my education. I am currently employed and working to save for my first year of college. Thank you very much for this scholarship. It will be a tremendous help to me.”
