The Selection Committee spent a long hard day working on Saturday,
June 18, 2011 and completed the review of the applications we
received for scholarships this cycle. A total of 30 applications
were received, one was not qualified to submit and disallowed. Of
the 29 valid applications we are able to fund fifteen (15) $1,000.00
scholarships based on the funds available.
We thank CW4 (Ret) William R. Buss, Committee Chairman, CW5 (Ret)
Ken Fowler, CW5 (Ret) Ken Draper and CW3 Charles A. Conway and CW2
