Jerry P. Rainey Scholarship Award

On Saturday 21 August 2010, SFA Chapter IX awarded two $500 Scholarships for the 3rd year in a row under the Jerry P. Rainey Scholarship.

Jerry Rainey was veteran of the Korean War and Vietnam where he served as a SF Medic on several "A" Teams. He was a past President of Chapter IX, as well as a close friend to Chapter namesake Isaac Camacho. Jerry's focus on helping others, and thinking of himself last, prompted the Chapter three years ago to develop and financial support a scholarship in his name. Read Jerry's bio here.

This year's highly deserving winners are Sonia Takacs who will graduate from Texas Tech Medical Center's Nursing Program in December with a B.S. in Nursing, and, Jenee Duran, a Senior at New Mexico State University majoring in Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology.
