Virtual AOF Investiture and Gerald Brown Mentoring Award on Sept 16th 4-6pm

 

Typically held in Washington DC in March, the Academy of Fellows Investiture ceremony was postponed due to Covid. Now it will be a virtual ceremony held September 16th from 4-6pm, which means we can all join in to watch! Our very own David Perkins, Director for the 88th ABW Strategic Initiatives Office, will become a Fellow in the class of 2020 and Randy Parker, AFIMSC Detachment 6 Director, will receive SAME’s Gerald C. Brown Mentoring Award. Watch Dave and the Class of 2020 get invested as Fellows and Randy receive his well-deserved national award on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/SAMENational/

Socially-distanced watch party with beverages anyone? If interested contact Nadja Turek at Nadja.turek@woolpert.com

Congratulations to the 2020 Recipients of SAME Kittyhawk Scholarships!

 

The SAME Kittyhawk Post is proud to announce our “class” of 2020 scholarship recipients – congratulations to the following students! These students were competitively selected based on their academic record, leadership and service activities, a personal statement of goals, recommendations and their connection to SAME and the DoD. We have invited all our scholarship winners to attend the July meeting to be recognized, to become SAME student members (which is free), and to stay connected with us as a part of their growing professional network! Students with an * are repeat winners or former science fair award winners, showing our on-going relationship with many of our winners. We especially thank our donors – LJB Inc, Heapy Engineering, Woolpert, and the Kolber, Frank and Turek families – and YOU, our members, for the funds raised through the year at our events that make the April Lewis, General Barnes and Sinclair scholarships possible!

Yellow Ribbon Program update! Ms. Amanda Fargo and the students at French Run Elementary, Reynoldsburg, Ohio, enthusiastically volunteered to create cards for our troops serving oversees as well as troops recovering in VA hospitals. We spent time learning about the definition of a “hero” for each student. Amanda’s father served in Vietnam. Thank you to Mr. Bill Sampson and all involved for supporting this great cause!
