SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — Two Island Palm Communities residents have been selected as recipients of the 2015 WinningEdge Scholarship sponsored by WinnCompanies, the company providing property management services at Island Palm Communities.

“We’re proud to work alongside an organization like WinnCompanies that has generously provided scholarships to our residents for several years,” said Pete Sims, IPC project director. “We look forward to this year’s recipients achieving much success in their future endeavors.”

Created in 2012, the WinningEdge Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to residents who are high school and GED graduates and who are pursuing studies at a post-secondary educational institution. Recipients are chosen based on academic performance, character and proficiency in their chosen field of study.

Tessa Baker and Greyson Haynes were among 43 national winners of $1,000 scholarships annually awarded by WinnCompanies.



I was very happy to learn that I was a recipient of the Winning Edge scholarship,” said Tessa, a 2015 graduate of Radford High School. Tessa will attend Northern Arizona University in the fall and pursue a nursing degree specializing in neo-natal care.

“Your (WinnCompanies’) financial generosity has allowed me to be one step closer to my goal, and it has inspired me to help others by giving back to the community,” added Tessa.



Greyson Haynes, also a graduate of Radford High School, will attend The Citadel in the fall. He plans to study criminal justice and pursue a career in the U.S. Army or Navy.

A total of $43,000 was awarded to WinnCompanies residents nationwide through the WinningEdge Scholarship Program this year. Of the 43 recipients, 21 are residents of military communities managed by Winn-Companies.
