Because members of their families chose to serve in the Armed Forces, students were eligible and eventually selected as recipients of the Loyal S. and Helen Fairall Memorial Scholarships.
The Fairall Memorial Scholarships provide full tuition and fees for 16 credit hours a semester, for the 2014-2015 academic year at Marshalltown Community College. Recipients include Brenda Burrows, daughter of Julian Pinon and Patricia Vargas of Tama.
Burrows is in her second semester of MCC's Practical Nursing Program. Brenda's husband, Brandon, currently serves in the Iowa National Guard as a helicopter pilot and has served in overseas deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.
