2019 Peoria Hometown Heroes BBQ Festival
The Peoria Chamber of Commerce has created an original new program to assist all Peoria High School students enlisting in any branch of the military upon graduating high school.
The initial portion of the program is to pair each enlisting student with a Veteran Mentor to discuss their upcoming enlistment and prepare them for what to expect as they move into military service. One student from each Service Branch will receive a monetary award to use for a party for their family and friends before shipping out.
Upon completion of their military term having served a minimum of 6 months continuous service and receiving an Honorable Discharge, the individuals accepted into the program will be eligible to receive financial assistance toward tuition if they live in Peoria and wish to go to college or financial and mentoring assistance from Veteran business owners if they plan to open a business in Peoria
