The scholarship committee consists of five members (left to right): MAJ Sherry D Ferki USA (Ret.) Chair, LTC Robert A Steorts USAF (Ret.), CAPT Robert C Parker Jr., USN (Ret,) LCDR Lynn M Terry USN (Ret.), and our newest member CDR Margaret E Cicirelli, USCG (Ret.)
The PACMOAA scholarship program was started by COL Frank Robertson, USA (Ret). He rose to a point of order at one of our early meetings as a TROA affiliated chapter and said that we should be more than a supper club; we should have an impact on the community. To this end, he proposed the establishment of a scholarship fund. On the spot he wrote a check for $500 and dared anyone to match it. He found his match in LTC Ruth Sweet. She matched his check and continued to contribute $500 annually to the fund for several years, almost until her demise. Frank Robertson moved out of the area shortly after.
