Reaction Statement: “As the daughter of an Air Force Veteran, I am so grateful to be awarded a scholarship that honors his service and my own commitment to education. ROTC was a pathway for my step-father to gain a university education, and seeing his fulfilling career as an attorney inspired both my sister and I to go to law school. Thank you to Berry Law for awarding me the Military Family Scholarship.”
