New Hampshire Army Reserve Ambassador James Normand is pleased to announce the nomination of two Granite State students for four-year Army Reserve Minuteman Scholarships.

Phebe Romano of Bedford High School was nominated for a four-year scholarship that will cover her tuition and fees at High Point University in North Carolina.

Nathaniel Wooding of Goffstown High School was nominated for a four-year scholarship that will cover his tuition and fees at Temple University.

Normand said he was excited that the Army Reserve now offers this scholarship opportunity. The New Hampshire ambassador is allotted two scholarships for students who are admitted to a four-year college, are willing to participate in ROTC and enlist in the Army Reserve for a six-year commitment, while also maintaining Army Reserve qualifications.

“This generous scholarship could amount to over $40,000 per year covering tuition and fees,” said Normand. “The plan is that good scholarship candidates will translate into strong leaders. Romano plans to pursue a career in medicine and Wooding will study business and finance. They are fine examples of what New Hampshire has to offer to its country. We congratulate them wholeheartedly.”
