Congratulations to this year’s Dietrich Memorial Scholarship winners who are starting college this fall with financial assistance from USBA.
Andrew Hurst of Indiana is majoring in biology at Yale University. Andrew is the grandson of Norman Beesley, a Commander in the Navy and USBA member since 1972.
Brianne Hoglin of Colorado is attending Lipscomb University with a major in Exercise Science/Physiology. She is the granddaughter of Richard Hoglin, an Air Force Major and USBA member since 1989.
Andrew and Brianne were selected as recipients of the 2014 Dietrich Memorial Scholarship based on their academic achievements, leadership accomplishments and community service. This scholarship is awarded annually to deserving graduating high school seniors who are children or grandchildren of USBA members in good standing.
Now in its 24th year, this non-renewable $2,000 college-assistance grant was established in memory of former USBA Executive Director and President, the late Maj Gen William Dietrich, USAF (Ret.). General Dietrich was a charter member of USBA which was founded in 1959. Dietrich was elected to the Board of Governors in 1972 and served as USBA President from 1985 until his death on December 18, 1989. He previously had served as Executive Director.
Do you have a child or grandchild who is a senior in high school? The 2015 scholarship application is available here and must be submitted by your college-bound graduating senior no later than March 31, 2015.
