PARKERSBURG — A Marine Corps veteran is the first recipient of a scholarship from the Mid-Ohio Valley Platoon of West Virginia and Ohio of the Marine Corps Veterans Association.

Alexis Wiseman served four years in the Marines from 2013 to 2017 and received the rank of E-4 corporal. She will graduate in December with an associate’s of applied science in welding technology.

“Earning this scholarship to help further my education in my career field is a true honor,” Wiseman said. “The Marine Corps Veterans Association is a community I am proud to be a part of.”

The MOV Platoon of West Virginia and Ohio is involved in other veterans projects in the community, including the Hershel Woody Williams Medal of Honor Foundation, Gold Star Family Memorial Monuments and Boy Scouts, among others.

“In addition to our other work, we believe in providing scholarships to younger generations who are furthering their education,” platoon Executive Officer John Sprigg said. “It is our honor and duty to help veterans, and we cannot wait to help more students in the future.”
