  • Jencarlo Martinez, junior and political science & pre-law major; father is Winston Martinez Herrera, U.S. Army Sergeant 
  • Reagan Swindler, master’s candidate in screenwriting; father is Ralph Swindler, U.S. Air Force Colonel 
  • Katelyn Slosson, junior and elementary education major; father is Jason Slosson, U.S. Army Specialist and Military Police 
  • Christina Douglas, junior and economics major; father is Christopher Douglas, U.S. Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class

With this partnership, we’re able to make a difference in the lives of these brave military families,” said Folds of Honor Founder Major Dan Rooney. “These scholarships don’t only provide educational support, but they also give hope to our nation’s heroes and their families. The need is great, and we’re incredibly thankful for this commitment from ACC.”
