“Being a SubForce Scholar and Dolphin Scholarship recipient means being given the opportunity by the community you were raised in to carry out and enhance its values. With what my family’s achievements and the experiences and growth I’ve fostered in thanks to my Dad and his involvement in the U.S. military, have provided via this annual scholarship, I may lengthen the positive influence and outreach of my military background to the rest of the world.”
