Eleven Cadets Receive Scholarships

VALDOSTA - Eleven Valdosta State University ROTC cadets received Phase I scholarships from the United States Air Force this semester as part of the In-College Scholarship Program.

Each will be awarded funding to pay for tuition and fees as well as $750 per year for books. Nominated by Lt. Col. John West, the eleven recipients were chosen after competing at a national-level against other qualified cadets at more than 140 AFROTC detachments in the Air Force. Evaluation was based on academic performance, physical fitness and demonstrated leadership potential. Of the eleven, five freshmen received three-year scholarships and six sophomores received two-year scholarships.

Recipients include Benjamin Farber, Jamil Martin, Spencer Vass, Tyler Barkhaus, Lauren Haschle, James Radford, Aaron Cain, Heather Dennen, Jake Stinchcomb, Andrew Watters and Lauren Fisher.
