“I find her to be a young woman of impeccable character, integrity, strong, quiet leadership and service-centeredness. She is always quite driven to achieve great things during her time in school, and to make the most from every moment of her experiences, both in and out of the classroom.”

~ Gary Kinder – Academic Advisor

“I would like to express my sincere gratitude for being awarded an Anchor Scholarship. Being awarded this scholarship means so much to me because of how much I value growing up in a military family, and the strong sense of patriotism I feel I gained as a navy “brat”. My dad served for 27 years as a Surface Naval Officer and his hard work and dedication to our country helped shape me into the person I am today. It would be my honor to accept a scholarship from the Anchor Scholarship Foundation and help honor the years he spent on many different navy ships and the numerous deployments he successfully completed. I thank you for the time spent reading my application, and for choosing me for this prestigious award.”
