2023 Rick Middleton Scholarship Winner - Jonathan Boone

From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank you for not only your consideration, but for selecting me as the recipient for this semester’s Rick Middleton scholarship. I would also like to thank the GAVCO for the hard work and dedication put towards our student veterans (myself included), military members, and dependents. You all are a light on troubled waters. So many people rely on the expertise of Certifying Officials to ensure not just their future, but those of their family members, and for all that we’ve sacrificed, it’s comforting to know that someone has our six on the other side. Thank you again for the opportunity to also be able to speak at your convention this year and tell my story and sing your praises. It has all been an absolute honor and privilege.

Thank you for choosing me to receive the Rick Middleton scholarship. My mother and I are very happy. I am planning to use the money for this scholarship on my Licensed Practical Nursing program this fall! I am super excited to be starting my path in Nursing at Wiregrass Georgia Technical College. I am proud to say that I am a student here, the staff, teachers, and Student Veteran Advisors all do an excellent job. Thanks again.
