Congratulations to Wando High School JROTC Cadet Rebecca Coleman as the recipient of the US Navy ROTC Prep scholarship to the University of San Diego, USD.

This scholarship is comparable to the J-100 where it includes room and board and all transportation expenses, but it is for five years instead of four. Since the USD is private, this scholarship is worth about three hundred and fifty-thousand dollars. This is a leadership-based scholarship, not only entirely based on academics. Cadet Coleman was interviewed a few times, by the USD and by the US Navy. Her plans are to become a surface warfare officer, and study behavioral neuroscience. She will also minor in Chinese—she is already fluent in Mandarin!
