UVa-Wise senior Zachary Evans, a cadet in the College’s ROTC program, was awarded a $2,500 USAA scholarship on Sept. 28. Evans competed against 7th Brigade cadets from 38 other colleges and universities across the nation, including Notre Dame, Ohio State and Michigan State, for the scholarship.
The officials in the UVa-Wise ROTC program submitted the scholarship packet on behalf of Evans, and they were pleased when he emerged as winner.
“He’s got a good GPA, his PT scores are good, and he’s a fine young man,” Sgt. Thomas Scholl said. “He will commission in May and will go on active duty.”
Lieutenant Colonel Glen Howie presented the check to Evans in front of the other UVa-Wise ROTC cadets. Howie told the cadets that the scholarship is an example of how success is awarded to those who make an extra effort.
“It’s nice to know hard work pays off,” Evans said after the scholarship presentation.
