Meet Johnny Mac Scholar Travon, a recent graduate of Hardin-Simmons University in Texas (@hsutx). Travon earned his Bachelor’s in Geology with a minor in Environmental Sciences.

Travon’s father is a U.S. Army combat veteran and recipient of the Bronze Star Medal and Purple Heart. Severely injured by an improvised explosive device (IED), he lost one leg to amputation and suffered a traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress. Travon left college temporarily to move back home to help care for his dad. He transferred back to school once his father had recovered from his surgeries.

Travon is a remarkable example of the resilience and maturity of military children. We’re simply in awe of our Johnny Mac Scholars. Good luck, Travon!

Aside from being able to provide scholarships to children of the fallen and combat-wounded, our favorite thing about our organization is our community. We are so fortunate to have fostered such an exceptional supporter base of donors who care deeply about giving back through education. Getting to see them at our events is always such a pleasure.

Setting goals and taking on challenges is always rewarding, but there's now a way to put your hard work towards a great cause.

A number of our supporters have undertaken Johnny Mac challenges recently. From Don Fallin and his intrepid Mount Kilimanjaro summiters at the start of this year to our recent KEYS100 ultramarathon finisher Milan Dinga, we've been amazed at what you all can do.

If you'd like to set out to complete a challenge to support Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund, contact us with a direct message or a comment here and we'll follow up on how to make it happen!

We’re checking in on Johnny Mac Scholar and graduate Brooke. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing back in 2017 from Jefferson College of Health Sciences in Roanoke, VA. Brooke is putting her degree to work! Currently, she’s a nurse in the cardiac intensive care unit at Carilion Clinic in Roanoke, VA.

Brooke is headed back to school soon to get her Master’s at Georgetown University with a specialty in adult-gerontology acute care as a nurse practitioner. Then she’d like to work in a surgical specialty.

“I am so appreciative of being a recipient of this scholarship. It helped me go into healthcare and further advance my career goals. Thank you for your continued support of veterans and their families. I sincerely appreciate all of the support.”

Brooke’s Father, a U.S. Army combat veteran, served in Operation Iraqi Freedom from 2004-2005. He died in 2015 from lung cancer resulting from burn pit exposure.

Brooke, we honor your family’s service and sacrifice. We admire your caring heart and dedication to your profession.

We're proud to introduce Sean, a Johnny Mac Scholar attending the U.S. Naval Academy Preparatory School and planning to follow on as a Midshipman at the U.S. Naval Academy this summer. Sean’s year at the prep school will better prepare him academically and athletically for the challenges ahead at the Naval Academy.

Sean is following in his Dad’s footsteps - his father was a U.S. Navy officer who passed away from a service-connected illness. As Sean says of his father, “It means a lot knowing he was a hero and that he wanted to serve his country and do what was right. Freedom is not a guarantee and people like him who serve and wear the uniform are allowing us to maintain freedom. I want to follow in his footsteps and be like him.”

Good luck, Sean, as you transition to the Academy this summer and prepare for a career of military service.

The perfect May photo.
With management and fundraising accounting for only 5% of income, this is one of the best funds I've seen in getting funds to its mission
Fantastic cause!
