“The Arleigh Burke Association Scholarship (and Anchor Scholarships in general) have had a tremendous impact on my college education. As a result of this generous award, I will be able to finish my degree in Chemistry this year and start using my degree. I am very proud of my father’s naval service and his time onboard the Arleigh Burke (I remember going to the ship as a young girl!) and am so appreciative of this Scholarship’s recognition of military families.”
