MSgt. Fred & Linda McClure Memorial Scholarship

This scholarship has been established to honor the memory and military service of MSgt. Fred and his wife, Linda McClure.  MSgt. McClure proudly served over 20 years in the Air Force, including service in Vietnam.  Much of his time was spent refueling airplanes during flight as a Boom Operator on a KC-135 flight crew.  He considered his service in the military more a privilege than a job.  When people would say “Thank you for your service” he would always say he was honored to serve.  Linda supported Fred’s love of the military and was proud to support his effort to serve our country.   

After retirement, Fred and Linda moved back to their hometown of Kennett, Missouri.  Both volunteered in their local school district, helping students and encouraging them to strive for excellence. 

Our hope for this scholarship is to honor their legacy by helping students reach their personal goals as they continue their education.
