The Virgin Islands National Guard Association (VINGA) presented a $1,000 scholarship award to Trey Francis in July at Estate Bethlehem, St. Croix.

Francis, an 18-year-old graduate of the St. Croix Central High School, plans to attend the North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University to pursue a degree in business administration and political science. “I am very honored to have received this generous award in helping me to pursue my educational career,” said Francis. He also plans to join the North Carolina University’s Air Force ROTC Program.

The Virgin Islands National Guard Association annually offers to graduating high school students the opportunity to compete for two $1,000 scholarships and two laptops in honor of Lt. Col. David C. Canegata III, who died on duty while serving in Iraq, Jan. 20, 2007.
