To celebrate the life and generosity of Stephen Charles Vogler, the former Chief Engineer for WLPO, WAJK & 96.5, Starved Rock Media created the Stephen Charles Vogler Memorial Scholarship. His generosity has allowed these stations to remain 100% locally owned and operated. The $1220 dollar award will be given annually to one student majoring in electronics or communications at Illinois Valley Community College.
