Lend Lease (U.S.) Community Fund Offers New Scholarship Opportunity To Lejeune High School Seniors
February 5, 2013 - 8:00am - April 1, 2013 - 12:00pm
Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, N.C.
A new scholarship opportunity is being offered by Lend Lease (US) Community Fund (LLCF) to sons and daughters of servicemembers who live in a Lend Lease privatized military community, like Atlantic Marine Corps Communities, and attend the installation’s DoDEA high school. There are currently only three locations where this is possible: Fort Knox and Fort Campbell, Kentucky, and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
“BlueStar Scholarships was created to recognize the service of the military personnel living in our homes and communities and to honor the many sacrifices of their children," said Phillip Carpenter, president of Lend Lease (US) Community Fund. “We hope this scholarship will enable more students to pursue higher education and develop into valued leaders in their fields of study as well as give back to the communities in which they live.”
In the program’s first year, LLCF, through BlueStar Scholarships, plans to award a total of twelve (12) $5,000.00 scholarships to eligible applicants for the upcoming 2013-2014 school year. Four of the 12 available scholarships will go to seniors in the graduating class of 2013 at Lejeune High School.
Program materials, including the application form and eligibility requirements, are available on the Atlantic Marine Corps Communities website at www.atlanticmcc.com/bluestar. Students can also see their high school guidance counselor to obtain information. The BlueStar Scholarships program is now open and accepting applications through April 1, 2013.
Should you have any questions about the application process or its requirements, please contact (615) 324-8800 or email email@example.com.

It is ALWAYS a pleasure to work with a consummate professional such as SgtMaj (Ret.) Frank Pulley. As the company 1stSgt for Hotel Company, MCT, SOI (West), I’ve attended a number of his briefs and one can visually see a positive change in the student’s attention levels as the SgtMaj delivers his presentation. The SgtMaj truly cares about the Marines and the Marine Corps and represents the MCA in an extremely admirable manner. It has been my experience that all Marines (including myself) benefit from the experience of attending a MCA presentation. And regardless of rank or years of experience, Marines should always seek to increase their level of proficiency and knowledge and MCA briefs provide us with that opportunity.

Thank you for all your help over the phone today. Planning a Marine Corps Ball is a lot of time, energy and work.

Just a quick note of thanks to Patty Everett. I arrived home from a week vacation to find a package from the Marine Corps Association. I was expecting to find one of the magazines I requested, however, I was pleasantly surprised to discover both magazines were inside. In a time when it seems no one cares about customer satisfaction I am gratified to discover that customer service is not a lost art at the MCA. Once again I thank you for your efforts on my request. It may have been thing but the effort made a huge impression.

I received the shipment of plaques, books and certificates today for
mail call. It was more exciting to me than candy or magazines! Thank
you very much.

Just wanted to let you know that I got the sword yesterday with time to spare. It showed up unscathed due to the excellent packing job despite the rough postal process. And most importantly it looks great and the Bahraini’s couldn’t be happier! Thanks again for all of your assistance.

My Name is Sergeant Major Juan. M. Hidalgo, Sergeant Major of the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) out of Camp Pendleton, CA. Sergeant Major (Ret.) Frank Pulley is one of my mentors and is someone that I have a tremendous amount of respect for. The MCA and SgtMaj Pulley do a phenomenal job in helping us recognize our Marines and Sailors and they continually demonstrate that they are always more than ready to support; anytime...Anyplace! And on behalf of the entire 13th MEU, I thank you very much!
Sergeant Major Juan. M. Hidalgo
Congratulations. You are more responsive and informative than any other website contact I can recall. I appreciate that very much. It’s really nice to have someone like you at the MCA “front door.”

I just wanted to say thanks so much for making sure the uniform got back
to me in time for my commissioning class's photo. It fits me well and I am so excited for commissioning which takes
place in 17 hours! Thank you again!

I wanted to take a moment and thank everyone at the association for sponsoring the Ground Awards Dinner on 3 June at the Crystal City Marriott. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and were tremendously pleased with the hospitality shown to us and the great accommodations. As well, I wanted to thank the association for the DVD of the event that was mailed to me. It is something that I will keep and treasure for the rest of my days. Again, thanks for everything.
