Other areas of study may be considered provided the applicant can provide explanation within the personal statement.

Andre Hornsby

Our first scholarship was given out to Port St Joe Highschool student, Andre Hornsby, c/o 2020! Andre was an easy choice for this scholarship because he is a hard worker, loves to play baseball, fish, and be on the water. He has already completed his Captains License since graduating and plans to attend Haney Technical Center and study Marine Service Technologies this fall. Congrats Andre, and thank you for applying for our scholarship!
