THE 8th ANNUAL PURPLE HEART SCHOLARSHIP was recently awarded to Kelsi Allen of Corunna. The scholarship was presented by chapter member John Callender of the Shiawassee Regional Chapter #1970 of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. She is majoring in Business Management.

   Allen’s grandfather, Gerald Larsen, was awarded the Purple Heart Medal for wounds sustained in combat. The Purple Heart Medal is the oldest military award currently in use. A free lifetime chapter membership is available to any Michigan resident who has been awarded the Purple Heart Medal.
