The Western Kane County Republican Organization is offering a scholarship in honor of former chairman Stan Bond who passed away in 2019. Stan was also a Montgomery Village Trustee and the State Central Committeeman for the 14th Congressional District, and was engaged in his community in many ways. The scholarship was first offered in 2019.
The scholarship is open to high school and college students residing in the Western Townships of Hampshire, Rutland, Burlington, Plato, Virgil, Kaneville, Blackberry, Big Rock, and Sugar Grove.
