Kara Shepard


“Due to the sacrifices of Navy Submariners and veterans, I have the opportunity to pursue higher education. Being a Dolphin Scholar means that I can honor these sacrifices, and share my experiences in the military community with my peers and professors. I believe that with a college degree, I can better honor and recognize the work of those who have protected this country.”
