MARK FORESTER SCHOLARSHIP
PAST AWARDEES SINCE 2013
Eastern Washington University
I'm greatly honored to have received this scholarship. I will be using the money from the scholarship to help pay my tuition at Eastern Washington University, where I am pursuing my first bachelor's degree in social work, with a minor in Criminal Justice. I'm very appreciative of the help the scholarship will bring, and I look forward to pursuing my field.
My name is Alencia Lentz, and I am currently attending college at Baylor University. I plan to use this scholarship towards my housing expenses in the fall and spring semester. My major is currently in Business Management and I will be pursuing my pole vault career on the track and field team at Baylor. I am so grateful for this opportunity and thank you all so much for this scholarship!
Psychology and Religious studies
St. Lawrence University New York
I am a sophomore at St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York. I am on the women’s basketball team and the women’s outdoor track and field team. I currently am a double major in Psychology and Religious studies. I am very thankful to receive this scholarship because it gives me the opportunity to live out my dream of playing collegiate sports, while double majoring. Also, this scholarship will help me pay for my tuition this year, and not take out loans. Recently, my parents have taken on the responsibility of caring for my grandmother who is going through multiple intense chemo-therapy sessions. Since she has multiple sessions throughout the year, she is unable to work. So, my parents have also taken on the responsibility of paying her bills and taking care of my uncle who has Down syndrome. This scholarship helps my family, because it is one less bill my parents have to worry about. I am very thankful for the opportunity to apply and receive this scholarship.
York Technical College
I am working on my associate degree in science but soon will transfer to Clemson University for my bachelor's in biomedical engineering. I attend class every day from 8 am to 5 pm, and currently, I am taking calculus and physics! This scholarship truly is changing my life, not only do I get to honor Mark Forester and his heroic act of selflessness, but it's a reminder to be grateful that every day I get to wake up and pursue what I love in the greatest country in the world. I am truly blessed today, and no number of words can be as impactful as a simple 'thank you.' Thank you for the opportunity to succeed and continue working on what I am passionate about, I hope that one day I will be creating life-saving technology accessible to all.
I just began my junior year of college this August, but it's my first year at Appalachian State. This scholarship will help me with my tuition for this Fall semester. I am currently pursuing my Bachelors of Science in Geology.
Campbell University in Buies Creek, NC
I am currently a senior at Campbell University. I am pursuing a degree In Engineering with a concentration in Electrical Engineering. This scholarship will allow me to finish my undergrad degree while being financially fit to continue my education in the master's program. Once again, thank you for choosing me. I am truly honored to be chosen for this Scholarship.
Special Education K Teacher
I will be attending community college and then transferring to Whitworth University. I am going to college to become a special education kindergarten teacher. I will be using this scholarship money to help pay for my tuition.
Game and Simulation development
Fayetteville Technical Community College
First, I would like to thank the Combat Control Association for giving me this opportunity and awarding me with this generous scholarship. I am attending my first college semester at Fayetteville Technical Community College. My Major is Game and Simulation development, so I am going into the computer science field. This scholarship will help quite a bit; even with the in-state tuition, my family is still paying around $1,000 for my tuition, not even including books. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to earn enough money that we can continue paying for my education and no longer have as much fear of going into debt.
Biology - Pre Med
University of Texas at San Antonio
Hello I’m Nadia Perez. I will be attending the University of Texas at San Antonio this fall. My major is biology on a pre-medical track. This scholarship will go towards buying a new laptop for my classes as well offset the cost of my honors campus dorm.
Indiana State University
I am attending Indiana State University. School started August 21, 2023, and I will continue at this school until I graduate in 2027. The scholarship will go towards paying for my classes and housing.
I appreciate this scholarship and what it will do for my future. I am a freshman at Texas A&M, and I am pursuing a degree in Kinesiology. I am also a member of the Corps of Cadets, Squadron 5. I am not on a military contract for this year, and I will not have that opportunity until my Junior year, so this scholarship will help pay for my tuition and other college costs. My ultimate goal is to graduate from A&M and pursue a career in the Air Force. I'm so excited to get started on this new chapter of my life, and I'm thankful to the CCA and its members for helping me pursue my goals.
I am so happy to have this opportunity, I will be using this scholarship to help pay for student housing. This will bring me closer to my school so I can fully immerse myself in my academic pursuits as a student.
