Katelyn Johansen, BecTech's 2016 Anchor Scholarship Foundation Awardee

Each year, BecTech sponsors an Annual Anchor Scholarship Foundation scholarship of $2,000.  These scholarships are awarded to eligible family members (children and spouses) of active duty, retired or honorably discharged Surface Navy personnel.  This year, awards were presented at a lunch banquet in Virginia Beach on June 8.  BecTech’s awardee was Katelyn Johansen who graduated from Princess Anne High School in Virginia Beach, VA and is headed to Old Dominion University to study Elementary Education.  Her academic and extracurricular highlights include:

  • 3.91 GPA
  • National Honor Society
  • Princess Anne High School Varsity Crew Team
  • Special Olympics
  • All-District Chorus
  • Church Young Women's Organizations

Clare Ellen Kerr, one of her teachers at Princess Anne High School, commented on Katelyn, "'Katelyn' is one of the hardest working students I have taught in 25 years....Her character and drive are top notch." Katelyn expressed her gratitude to BecTech, "Thank you so much for supporting me in my pursuit for a higher education. Your generosity means the world to me, and I hope when I am finished with my education that I will be able to help others. I will strive to learn all that I can, and follow a successful career path."
