Loretta Cornett-Huff Memorial Scholarship

Two Hawaii Marines became the first recipients of the new Loretta Cornett-Huff Memorial Scholarship, Jan. 21, 2014. Master Sgt. Marion Eggers, 34, and Sgt. Michael Joseph, 24, formally received their scholarships from Dr. David Howle, Executive Director and Campus Dean, Wayland Baptist University--Hawaii Campus, during a presentation at the Marine Corps Base Hawaii Education Center.

Recently, Wayland began offering two scholarships in honor of the retired command education services officer, who passed away June 20, 2013. Cornett-Huff, who served in numerous positions throughout her career, including the Navy Campus Far East area coordinator in Yokosuka, Japan, and public relations director at Oklahoma City University, had worked more than 42 years in government service.
