Mike and Leslie Dickson of Springfield endowed the Matthew Dickson Memorial Scholarship and Matthew Dickson “Pass It On” Award in honor of their son, a Glenwood High School graduate and U.S. Marine, Matthew Dickson.

Matt, a 2000 Glenwood grad, passed away in March 2021. He was a husband, son, brother, uncle, grandson, son-in-law, and Purple Heart-honored Marine veteran. To continue his legacy of service, leadership, hope, and strength, his parents have established a scholarship and award for students attending Lincoln Land Community College.

This is an annual scholarship available to LLCC students enrolled in any program of study for a minimum of six credit hours and must maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale. The scholarship is available to first-time freshman or continuing college students with preference to a United States Veteran and Chatham Glenwood High School graduate.

The LLCC Foundation scholarship application period for the 2022-2023 academic year is now open. To be considered for LLCC Foundation scholarships, current and prospective students complete one online form that applies them to all the scholarships for which they qualify. The scholarship application and more information are available at
