NDIA Gulf Coast completes their fourth $100,000 endowment to the University of West Florida

From the University of West Florida: “The University of West Florida is extremely fortunate to have generous, thoughtful and innovative partners like the NDIA Gulf Coast Chapter. We are grateful for your foresight in establishing a scholarship endowment that will afford future generations of UWF students the opportunity to further their education and prepare for them for the professional careers of tomorrow.”  — Dr. Meredith N. Brunen, Interim Vice President for University Advancement
On Thursday, April 27, 2017, the Gulf Coast Chapter of the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) presented the University of West Florida (UWF) a check for $25,000 to complete the NDIA’s fourth $100,000 endowment to UWF.

The four scholarship focus areas are: two for Science and Engineering, one for Teaching STEM subjects, and one for Cybersecurity. Accepting the check on behalf of UWF were Dr. Meredith Brunen, Interim VP for Univ Advancement; Dr Michael Huggins, Dean of College of Engineering; and Meredith, chief of Donor Relations. Presenting on behalf of the NDIA board were Ms. Missy Ward, Gulf Coast Chapter President; and Ms. Theresa Hughes, Scholarships Committee Chairperson.

These 4 separate scholarships have enabled an average of 6-10 students (per semester!) at UWF to pursue STEM curriculum and foster/grow the talent pool in our local area. Attending the UWF reception were two students who are previous NDIA scholarship recipients: Ms. Gabriella Gressett, and Mr. Devin Wisdom.
