American Legion Pou-Parrish Post 132
Members of the American Legion’s Pou-Parrish Post 132 decided in October 1995 to create a scholarship endowment at Johnston Community College. The purpose of the scholarship was to help students from Johnston County who need financial help to attend college.
“The value of having the endowment with JCC is the knowledge that we are making a long-term contribution to the American Legion program of Americanism, which includes community service, veterans’ education and youth education,” said Post 132 Commander Ernie Allsbrook.
“It also pleases us that we have a relationship with a great community organization like JCC,” he said.
Since the fund’s creation, JCC has been able to award several scholarships on behalf of the American Legion Post.
