"Shannon received the Airmen's Memorial Foundation Scholarship for 2015 and it was for $2,000.00. Shannon is at Clemson University, in the Calhoun Honor's College, studying Mathematical Sciences and Physics. She is a 2nd semester sophomore and has a 4.0 average, being named to the President's list every semester. She is also a member of the Clemson University Dance Team, "The Rally Cats" . They dance at all the football and basketball games and do community service. She is also a member of Zeta Tau Alpha sorority. (She just danced at the Orange Bowl and her team is in the National Championships -- Go Tigers!)
Once Shannon knew she wanted to attend Clemson she knew that she needed to find scholarships to help our family afford the out of state tuition. We have always told Shannon that hard work will get you what you want and she is definitely a hard worker. So, we started looking for scholarships that fit her profile. Since her Dad is a Retired Master Sergeant who served in Desert Storm we looked for Air Force Scholarships and our AFSA membership benefits. That's where she found the AMF Scholarship and applied. She also applied for numerous other scholarships and received many, helping take the burden off our family. Students need to know that there are scholarships out there for every student, not just freshmen. Thanks to Air Force Sergeants Association for making scholarships available to help military families succeed. I am not sure if organizations realize how much they are helping college students reach their dreams without amassing a huge amount of debt! Thank you. And to everyone out there, apply for outside scholarships. They are out there!"
