The Technical College of the Lowcountry recently named Chris Kirby the recipient of its first Veteran Scholarships Forever scholarship award. Kirby, a former marine, is enrolled in the emergency medical technician program and plans to become a firefighter.
VSF is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping veterans transition back to civilian life. VSF establishes college scholarships for veterans enrolled in certified vocational and technical training programs that are not covered by the G.I. Bill. To date, VSF has given TCL $4,000, a portion of which funded Kirby’s award.
