Have you applied for the Texas A & M Freshman semester at sea? That
is a great one. Also, AIM is available for scholarships to the USCG
academy. The US Navy and US Merchant Marine Academy also have AIM type
programs. You have to apply by 31 March.
Contact Southern Region Vice Commodore and National Committee Member
Jimmie Homburg at email@example.com for more information. Please let
me know right away if you need more information. Remember, the deadline
for AIM is 31 March.
By the way, during SeaBadge NE-VIII last weekend, three lady
mates mentioned that when the boys get Eagle and a big ceremony right
away in the beginning and girls get nothing, the girls are deprived of
the sense that they are important and some may lose the impetus to work
the difficult course to Quartermaster. These mates and I thought that an
early emphasis on the Gold Award might help the girls get some needed
recognition too. What do you think about that?
