McDonough County United Way honored five area high school juniors with the Mother Moon Service Scholorship last night.
Each recipient will receive $1,000 toward their education and will work together their senior year to complete a service project and educate others about the scholarship.
The scholorships were given out based on volunteerism and service to others. It's funded through the Leighty Foundation and named after Sadie “Mother” Moon in honor of her lifetime of service to others.
