Meet our 2022 AMVETS Scholarship Winners
We are excited to showcase our 2022 AMVETS Scholarship Winners! This year, our members and officers elected to widen our reach with our AMVETS Scholarships for the first time in our Post’s history; throughout the Greater Summit County, Ohio area.
Continuing education, in all forms is an integral part of success in life. That is why our scholarships could be used at 2 or 4 year schools, including trade schools. It is our hope that the young men and women we reach through this program will learn to become better, citizens that honor their Country, continue to do great things for their communities; during and after their initial formal schooling is complete. We also hope that they will inspire others to honor our Nation’s heroes and the families who sacrifice along their side. Perhaps one day they will serve in the Armed Forces, or they will volunteer in organizations like AMVETS. They can find ways to get involved either as AMVETS Members through their own honorable military service, or as Sons of AMVETS, or through our Ladies Auxiliary. You can learn more about our missions in Ohio through the AMVETS Department of Ohio. Naturally, we would love you to check out membership in our own post.
This was our second year of using an online application process and we believe it has been very successful. We will continue to use this method and hope to be able to reach more students. It reduces the chances for lost mail, or late mail, and everything is electronically time stamped.
We were very pleased with the applications we received, and it’s our pleasure to award our scholarships while the students honor the service and sacrifices of a family member.
This year, due to the generosity of another Veterans Organization, the DAV Summit County Chapter, we were able to award 3 scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each.
