This scholarship is in Memory of Tracy Lynn Kazunas, (1970 - 1987) niece, who was attending Smith Vocational School studying printing at the time of her death.

Gary and Judy Bowler were born and raised in Massachusetts and have been residents of Florida since 1986.

Corporal Gary Bowler attended a trade high school, served in the Marine Corps in Vietnam, and knows the importance of the training and discipline the military offers. His wife, Judy, attended a business school and successfully worked in the insurance industry and retail sales.   

Both have served their community as volunteers and leaders for the Veterans Midpoint Memorial Charitable Trust, Inc., Habitat for Humanity, the Vietnam Veterans of America, Feed My Starving Children, Toys for Tots, and many more charities. They realize that not everyone can attend the best college or school, but with hard work, there are many great positions available to those who get the technical or trade training needed for a great career.

This scholarship aims to support students who are interested in pursuing the trades so they can further their professional achievements.

Any US Citizen from Massachusetts or Florida who has a High School diploma, GED or has been honorably discharged by the US Military and wants to study at a trade or technical school can apply for this scholarship.

To apply, in 50+ words tell us about yourself and your volunteering experience and what field you plan to pursue or how you will develop your current career.
