Award Founded By San Francisco Giants' Pitcher Brian Wilson In
Memory Of His Father
The Air Force Association (AFA) has announced the first
recipients of its newest scholarship, the Michael Wilson
Scholarship, a fund created earlier this year that annually grants
two Air Force ROTC cadets in the United States money toward
college. This significant scholarship was established through Brian
Wilson, pitcher for Major League Baseball's San Francisco Giants.
Wilson established this scholarship to recognize the commitment to
service and legacy of his father, Michael Wilson. The gift is the
largest scholarship given by an individual to be administered by
the Air Force Association in its 65 year history.
The 2011 recipients of the Michael Wilson Scholarship are Cadet
Kaleb Simpson, a junior at the University of Delaware, and Cadet
Alexander Shuler, a senior at the University of Washington. The
pair will be presented their award at AFA's Global Warfare
Symposium in Los Angeles, California, on November 18, 2011.
"The purpose of this scholarship program is to recognize AFROTC
cadets coming into their junior or senior year who've demonstrated
a remarkable level of commitment to both their organization and
their studies," said George Muellner, Vice Chairman of the Board
for Aerospace Education. "These two recipients are well-deserving
of this award, illustrating great leadership and talent that have
set them apart from their peers."
"On behalf of AFA, we appreciate the commitment to service held
by Michael Wilson, embodied in these two cadets," said Mike Dunn,
President and CEO of AFA. "We at AFA are deeply grateful to Brian
Wilson for this generous gift that allows us to further support
ambitious young men and women in their pursuits of education."
AFA encourages the pursuit of education by offering numerous
scholarships and grants to Air Force active duty, Air National
Guard and Air Force Reserve members and their dependents. AFA also
awards various educator grants to promote science and math
education at the elementary and secondary school level.
