Army ROTC Scholarship

Last year, I started my journey to attend college and I applied to all the service academies and civilian schools and finally for the ARMY & NAVY ROTC Scholarships.

Although, I signed my letter of intent for the United States Naval Academy Prep School at the Naval Station in Newport, Rhode Island. It is interesting to see what could have happen.

Last week, I found out I was awarded a full ARMY ROTC scholarship to the University of Texas in San Antonio. I also received acceptances to Texas A&M and UC Riverside.

I mention in a earlier post I also received an appointment to the United States Merchant Marine Academy.I am curious still curious if I will receive any offers from Air Force Academy or West Point. They are supposed to notify us by April 15th.

It was neat getting the letter below.

Yucaipa Youth Commission Visits El Dorado Park

Our Yucaipa Youth Commission got to visit the new El Dorado park here in Yucaipa. It is a nature preserve with trails for hikers, horse back riding or bicyclist. It is truly beautiful and only about 1 mile from my home.

Kitty Hawk Air Society

Kitty Hawk Air Society

I received my official Kitty Hawk Air Society certificate. The Kitty Hawk Air Society (KHAS) is the Honor Society for the AFJROTC program. The purpose of the KHAS is to further instill cadet Leadership and Teamwork qualities. In a manner similar to other Honor Societies, “Kitty Hawkers” are required to maintain a 3.0 weighted GPA with no grade below a “C”. Specific KHAS objectives are: to promote higher academic standards; be of service to the school and community; promote excellence, integrity, and initiative; develop leadership ability; encourage academic excellence, and further educational development in post high school years. KHAS members also serve in key leadership positions throughout the corps.

I had the honor to restarting this program at Yucaipa High Schoool
