In August, the third recipient of the Rocky Mountain Mattress scholarship was awarded to Alixandria Wright of Mio, MI. Each semester this scholarship is given in Mark’s honor, and The Mark Forester Foundation proudly supports the cause. The price of freedom hits her close to home as her cousin, PFC Jason Wright, was KIA in December 2003 in Iraq.
You can read more about her and the scholarship HERE.
Alixandria gave us a few details about herself:
“I am from Mio, Michigan; a small one stop light, K-12 school kind of town in northern Michigan. My major is Management with a certificate in Human Resources. I currently work at a bank as a teller and absolutely love it. I think I would enjoy something in the banking industry or human resources as long as I’m working with people. But my real goal is a family. I think my ultimate goal is to find a job that I love while letting me be a mom. I know I’m 21 but that has been my dream since I can remember. My parents and I traveled a lot so I would love to be able to do that as well.”
Being a mom is a very worthy goal. Thank you Alixandria for participating in the scholarship contest and for your appreciation of our military. We wish you well as you continue your education at Ferris State University.
