There were two Dietrich Memorial Scholarship award winners for 2019: Sharlelie Marquis and Faith Wahl.

Sharlelie is from Cicero, NY and plans to study pre-law at Marymount University in fall 2019. Some of her hobbies include figure skating, playing volleyball and reading. Her father, Arthur Marquis is an Army veteran and has been a member of USBA for nearly 20 years.

Faith is from Bismarck, ND and will be entering the nursing program at the University of North Dakota. She enjoys volleyball, basketball, and volunteering at her church. Faith’s step-father is Lieutenant Colonel Gregory McDonald of the Air National Guard.

Recipients are selected on the basis of academic achievement, leadership accomplishments and participation in community activities.

The scholarship was established to honor the memory of former USBA Executive Director and President, the late Maj Gen William A. Dietrich, USAF (Ret.) and is awarded every year to a graduating high school senior who is a child or grandchild of a USBA member in good standing.
