NOLA McENTIRE DAR SCHOLARSHIP

Nola McEntire joined General Macomb Chapter NSDAR October 15, 1994, and was an active member until her passing June 18, 2014. Nola was a graduate of Western Illinois University where she received her bachelor and master's degrees as well as worked in food service for 17 years. Nola was a fan of education and after her death LaVern "Mac", her husband, decided to give a scholarship in her name through General Macomb Chapter NSDAR. Each year a scholarship is awarded to a local deserving student in honor of Nola — Mrs. Mac.
