WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE FALL SEMESTER! THANKS TO ALL WHO APPLIED.
We have selected the first recipient of the Tim Breneman Scholarship from a pool of very deserving applicants!!!
Jerry D. was a AFSOC Pararescue Jumper (PJ) and is currently pulling down a 4.0 in Accounting at The University of Florida. His awards include being a 3-time recipient Airman of the quarter, 1-time at Group Level; Airman Leadership School Leadership Award, Airman Leadership School Distinguished Graduate Award, Helicopter Team Leader, Air Medal w/ 2 oak leaf clusters, Aerial achievement medal, AF outstanding Unit Award w/ Valor Device, National Defense Service Medal, Afghanistan Campaign Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, AF Expeditionary Service Ribbon w/ Gold Border, Small Arms Expert Marksmanship Ribbon. This Scholarship is a small token of our appreciation to Jerry, who after the grueling PJ Pipeline lived the PJ motto, "That Others May Live".
Shortly after our Ranger Buddy turned Aviator Tim Breneman was killed in a training accident during aerial gunnery in his AH-64 Apache, Mike brought up the idea of a scholarship in his honor. This site is the culmination of that vision. We lost a Ranger Buddy, friend, and brother on that day and this is one small way in which we can remember and honor him.

Recognizing that I volunteered as a Ranger, fully knowing the hazards of my chosen profession, I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor, and high esprit de corps of my Ranger Regiment.
Acknowledging the fact that a Ranger is a more elite soldier who arrives at the cutting edge of battle by land, sea, or air, I accept the fact that as a Ranger my country expects me to move further, faster and fight harder than any other soldier.
Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be, one-hundred-percent and then some.
Gallantly will I show the world that I am a specially selected and well-trained soldier. My courtesy to superior officers, neatness of dress and care of equipment shall set the example for others to follow.
Energetically will I meet the enemies of my country. I shall defeat them on the field of battle for I am better trained and will fight with all my might. Surrender is not a Ranger word. I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my country.
Readily will I display the intestinal fortitude required to fight on to the Ranger objective and complete the mission though I be the lone survivor.
Rangers Lead The Way!.."All the way!"- The Ranger's Creed
