Legendary Marine offers scholarship program

Florida-based Legendary Marine started two financial support programs to benefit area youth and its employees' families.

The Legendary Marine Scholarship Program was launched in four market areas to help graduating seniors further their education. A $1,000 scholarship will be presented this spring to as many as four students graduating in 2014 from schools in the Panama City, Destin and Fort Walton Beach, Fla., and Gulf Shores, Ala., area markets.

Applications were sent to 27 high schools and trade schools in the markets where Legendary Marine has dealerships.

In addition, the company has rolled out a new year-round "Family Fund" program that allows employees with children from middle school through college to apply once a year (per child) for funds to support special youth activities. Support areas range from educational funds to special trips, community programs, sports/athletics, training, military and other projects.

"We are pleased to be in a position today to give back to our communities as well as to support our employee families, with the goal to help build a solid foundation for tomorrow's leaders," managing partner Fred Pace said in a statement. "We hope our contributions will assist deserving young people in achieving their goals and fulfilling their dreams."
