WGU Texas student Misha Powell was recently awarded a Military Appreciation Scholarship. Powell, an Army, Air Force Reserve, and Texas Army National Guard veteran, recently joined a leading telecommunications company, which led him to a new career in IT. With this scholarship, he is on his way to earning his BS in Network Operations and Security degree and hopes to move into a network or security engineer role.

Each scholarship will be credited to the student’s account at the rate of $625 per six-month term, renewable for up to four terms.
