Robert J. Moore & Ellen G. Moore Scholarship
Prior to his death, Bob Moore committed a portion of his estate trust to scholarships for deserving youth in Wenona, Illinois who are in need of financial assistance to pursue a college education. This scholarship will be awarded based on financial need, so more than one may be awarded.
