Salute to Scholars
Education is extremely important to Vincent as evidenced by him fulfilling his promise to receive his Bachelor’s degree, which he did in May 2016 after finishing his college credits at the University of South Florida. As an alumni of Widefield High School in Colorado Springs, Vincent wants to support other military dependents at the school that gave him so much. A $2,500 scholarship has been gifted annually, since 2014, to one graduating senior at WHS who is a child of active duty, retired, or deceased military personnel. In 2015, the foundation added a second annual $2,500 scholarship in the Tampa Bay area which is awarded to a graduating senior from a Hillsborough or Pinellas County high school. To date, the foundation has awarded a total of $12,500 in scholarship funds through the Salute to Scholars Program.
Eligible students must maintain at least a 2.5 GPA and plan to attend a four-year college or university, trade/vocational school, or community college. Applications for the Salute to Scholars Program become available every year in February. To access the 2017 Salute to Scholars application, CLICK HERE.
