Our Application Review Committee completes the review and ranking of all JWF scholarship applications generally by April 15th with results posted soon afterwards. As a member of the scholarship committee, those cadets who apply are an amazing and diverse core group of future leaders. All generally hold high positions in the program, all hold solid pedigrees academically and scholastically. Mostly, all were special in their own way and are to be commended for their efforts involving the application. Strong community service commitments, very high ACT/SAT/GPA ranks, and GLOWING LETTERS of recommendation annually made this a tough group to select just FIVE finalists who will then interview face-to-face, on-site during the upcoming Nationals. The selection of this scholarship continues to be a most difficult task that I am honored every year to be a part of with the other board members..
Jean Weil was the driving force behind the great success of the National High School Drill Team Championships in the early years. She was forced to drop out of high school to help support her family and always wished to finish high school and attend college. She worked hard all her life, was extremely quick minded and always cared deeply about the cadets who attended the event. She spent a great deal of her working years helping to make "The Nationals" the special event that it has become. I know she would be very proud to know the high caliber of people that apply for this scholarship every year.
We look forward to receiving your application to the upcoming event in the early Spring. Good luck to you this school year!
