Derek Wood of Millbrook High School in Raleigh received the 2015-2016 Civilian Marksmanship Program Youth Scholarship.
Derek will receive a one-year, $1,000 scholarship from the program based on marksmanship participation, grade point average and merit.
Eligible applicants were graduating seniors from JROTC, high school, club or 4-H programs who participated in marksmanship programs and also excelled academically and within their communities.
Civilian Marksmanship Program staff and board members carefully reviewed hundreds of applications from across the country to determine which exceptional students would receive the scholarships.
Never miss a local story.
The Civilian Marksmanship Program is a national organization dedicated to the respect for and safe handling of firearms, and instilling patriotism and discipline in our youth participants.
