Special Operations Forces Warrior Outdoor Leadership for the Future, a nonprofit organization based in Tampa, Florida, offering college and career outdoor leadership opportunities for teenagers of fallen members of the Special Operations Forces community, announced today its partnership with Admiral Farragut Academy to offer a full-year scholarship valued at $48,800 to a SOFWOLF student with outstanding academic, personal and leadership qualifications.
“This is a remarkable opportunity to support a SOFWOLF student in a way that could change their life for the better,” said Sara Moola, co-founder of SOFWOLF. “This partnership with AFA is proof of what is possible when a community comes together.”
AFA is a college-prep school academy based in St. Petersburg, Florida, serving students in grades pre-K-12. With a math and science core curriculum, AFA emphasizes outdoor leadership skills, including sailing, aviation, team sports and more. Its upper school, which starts in eighth grade, is also known worldwide for its boarding program and its naval science program’s best boarding school in US structure. Recent graduates of AFA have continued their educational studies at prestigious private universities, including Stanford, Princeton and Duke.
“We’re excited to be partnering with SOFWOLF on this initiative,” said Tony Sloan, chief development officer for AFA. “We admire the work they’ve done to help teens of Special Operations Forces warriors whom we have lost, and we look forward to welcoming a deserving student to AFA.”
