We Honor Service and Sacrifice By Providing Merit Based Memorial Scholarships To The Families Of Current And Veteran Unit Members of the United States Army Special Operations Command.
Thank you for your continued support of the hopes and dreams of this area's young people. I intend to represent the values your organization epitomizes, as well as the defining moral characteristics SFC Lance Scott Cornett, the man for whom my scholarship is named, demonstrated throughout a fine career culminating in valiant combat efforts in Iraq.
Although I have declared Political Science my major, Yale offers a unique opportunity to base my education in a liberal arts curriculum spanning many subjects. I will study two foreign languages, French and Arabic, as preliminary actions in specializing my degree in Middle Eastern studies. I look forward to being a part of a thriving intellectual community that encourages each of these interests.
