The two seniors in the Hilltopper Battalion graduated May 12 and have benefited from scholarships during their four years at Western Kentucky University.

Rexing and Kloth used the money they would have spent on wedding reception gifts for their guests to set up the $500 scholarship that will be presented each spring to an ROTC cadet.
