Legendary Marine hands out scholarships


Destin, Fla.-based Legendary Marine announced the winners of its inaugural 2014 Legendary Marine College Scholarships.

From 48 submissions, Legendary chose four students to receive a $1,000 scholarship.

Winners include Blythe Greene and Kerri Andre of Fort Walton Beach (Fla.) High School; Avalon Dudinsky of North Bay Charter High School in Panama City, Fla.; and Kaitlyn Hickman of Fairhope (Ala.) High School.

Winners were judged by a Legendary Marine in-house independent panel that selected finalists based on equal weighting in the areas of academic achievement, high school leadership and community service. Other scoring components included a personal essay and three recommendations.

"First, Legendary Marine was very pleased to provide college scholarships and support our young people in the markets we serve," Legendary Marine managing partner Fred Pace said in a statement. "We are very happy to invest in these outstanding students and future leaders.”
