CARLISLE BARRACKS/CUMBERLAND VALLEY LOCAL
AUSA CHAPTER AWARDS FIVE SCHOLARSHIPS for 2012
The Scholarship Panel of the Carlisle Barracks/Cumberland Valley Chapter of AUSA selected this year's scholarship winners. After evaluating the applications and conducting an in-depth discussion of the applicants' qualifications, the four panel members awarded seven scholarships to deserving dependents of current local chapter members. The panel recommended, and the Chapter Board approved the award of $1000 to Molly R. Dowling; $500 each to Meagen A. Dunleavy and Mary Yuengert, and $250 to each of four other candidates: Elyse N. Lawson, Bailey P. McKenney, Nathan A. Towery, Amaya P. George. The Panel reported that all the applicants had impressive records of academic, leadership, volunteerism, and athletic achievements, and that selections for the scholarships were very, very competitive. Thanks to all those chapter member dependents who submitted applications.
The scholarship winners represent the best and brightest of our Chapter Membership dependents with all being National Honor Society Members and with two being their high school valedictorians. The candidates served in numerous class and school leadership positions, were captains and letter winners in numerous inter-scholastic sports teams, performed in singing, dance, musical and performing arts activities, earned numerous academic achievement awards and received many, many more honors.
It is with great pride that our Chapter awards these scholarships to these seven exceptional young adults and we also express our gratitude to all our members for their contributions and support throughout the year that helps make these awards possible.
