There were two Dietrich Memorial Scholarship award winners for 2018: Barilynn Shelby and Makenna Steger.

Barilynn is from Johnston City, IL and will attend Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, IL and plans to study psychology. Her grandfather, William E. Hermetz is an Air Force veteran. She is sponsored by her grandmother Jacqueline Hermetz, who has been a member of USBA for 15 years.
