Lon Turn Memorial Scholarship

Established by Lewie and Elaine Byers
$500

Corporal Henry Lon Turn was a classmate of ours from the JHS Class of 1964. He bravely enlisted in the armed services immediately after high school and was the first from this area to go to Vietnam, where he lost his life in battle at a very young age. We owe a debt of gratitude to heroes like Lon, and we are forever proud of our classmateā€¯. ~ Lewie and Elaine Byers
