Recently, the American Legion Paradise Post 149 and the 40&8 Voiture 306 partnered to create a nursing scholarship program at the College of Southern Nevada.  Each semester, two $500 scholarships are awarded to students pursuing a nursing degree.  Veterans and their family members receive special consideration for the awards, and this semester one Veteran and the wife of an active duty Air Force Staff Sergeant were selected.  Selected were Martin Brooks and Yosimar Rodriguez.
