Rocky Mountain Mattress Announces Winner of the “Honor the Heroes” College Scholarship Essay Contest.
Earlier this year, in celebration of Independence Day, Rockymountainmattress.com partnered with The Mark Forester Foundation to provide a $1,000 college scholarship to the winner of the patriotic-themed “Honor the Heroes” essay contest. Now, six months later, the two organizations proudly announce Lindsay Walters, a student at the University of Central Florida, as the winner.
In Lindsay’s own words, “I grew up in Panama City, FL, which has a huge military influence with both an Air Force base and a Navy Base. I have lived in Orlando, FL for seven years. I received my bachelor’s degree in Education from Florida State University. I am currently teaching and starting my master’s degree in Educational Leadership in January 2013. This year is my tenth year teaching. I am currently a 5th grade teacher and hope to become a school administrator after my degree is completed.”
The Mark Forester Foundation sincerely thanks Lindsay for not only participating in the essay contest, but most importantly for her efforts to Honor the Heroes in her classroom. Her $1000 scholarship money will be well used.
Below are press releases about the scholarship program.
