Sara McCaffery and Tiffany Dixon were among 43 national winners of the scholarship awarded annually by WinnCompanies.  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.

Sara McCaffery, 21, a student of James Madison University, will apply her scholarship toward her senior year where she is studying health sciences and humanitarian affairs.

“I am so thankful to be a recipient of this scholarship,” McCaffery said. “It will be extremely helpful as I begin senior year of college at James Madison University, and prepare to graduate in May.”

Tiffany Dixon, 18, who graduated magna cum laude from Moanalua High School, will apply her scholarship toward her education at Washington State University where she plans to pursue business administration.

Tiffany said she believes the scholarship is very important because everyone should strive towards achieving their academic goals and doing so without creating a huge debt burden to start a young adult life makes even better sense.

A total of $42,000 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 WinnCompanies.
