Derek Wilcox | 2018 Scholarship Winner

It is a great honor to be awarded a scholarship that honors the life of someone as inspiring as master Sargent Corey Hood. This means so much to me and to my family. This is more than a scholarship. It is a challenge to live up to the example that Corey has set.

Corey was a combat veteran who spent his Army career bravely serving you and me. My goal in life is also to help people. My chosen Major of nursing will give me the opportunity to improve the lives of patients, give emotional support to families and to do all I can to help others in need.
