Many families think that there is nothing to do in Fayetteville – but they are wrong. Fayetteville and the surrounding areas have a wealth of adventures waiting for people to explore. There are local breweries, food truck events, theatres with great performances, farmers markets, local biking and running trails….the list goes on and on. The challenge is knowing where to find all of the information.

Fort Bragg, N.C. (June 5, 2017) – Corvias Foundation, a private, charitable foundation and the charitable arm of Corvias, has been committed to supporting military families in the pursuit of higher education since 2006. This year, its 11th, Corvias Foundation has awarded college scholarships of up to $50,000 to five outstanding students from Fort Bragg, as part of the 12th class of scholarship recipients.
Aquesha Addison from E.E. Smith High School has participated in National Honor Society, Key Club, and Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFJROTC). Aquesha plans to study engineering at Florida State University.
Brittany Broome from Jack Britt High School has been involved with Yearbook as editor-in-chief, Student Government, and Key Club. Brittany plans to study international human rights law or diplomacy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Grace Schilling from Massey Hill Classical High School has been involved in Student Government, swimming, and running. Grace plans to study biology at the University of Kansas.
Leah Ortiz from Massey Hill Classical High School has been active with the Science Olympiad, National Honor Society, and soccer. Leah plans to study nursing at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
Tristen Orr from E.E. Smith High School has participated in Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFJROTC) and soccer. Tristen plans to study education at East Carolina University.
The scholarships provide reliable, recurring financial assistance over each student’s four years of study, as well as a support network that is committed to his or her academic and professional growth. Students receive scholarships to pursue a secondary education at colleges and universities around the country.
“This scholarship gives me the opportunity to further my academic career without placing any economic burden on my family,” said 2017 scholarship recipient, Brittany Broome. “Thanks to the generosity of the Corvias Foundation, I am able to thrive next year in college without worrying about the pressures of paying for college so that I can now focus entirely on my studies.”
Corvias Foundation awarded the scholarships based on merit and need. Each student was required to respond to four questions that highlighted different aspects of their lives as students and as members of an active-duty military family. This fall, each student will be attending the four-year institution of his or her choice to pursue their academic careers.
“Each year, we are awed by the drive and determination in these military family members to reach high in their goals and dreams, and all the while, giving back to their communities,” said John Picerne, Foundation Founder, “Being able to support our scholars financially and through ongoing mentoring and other opportunities is an honor we cannot quantify.”
Since 2006, Corvias Foundation has awarded more than $7 million through 364 scholarships to military spouses and children at 13 different Army and Air Force installations. Among this year’s scholarship recipients are aspiring engineers, philanthropists, nurses, physical therapists, and teachers.
The Foundation awarded 12 scholarships up to $50,000 to children of active-duty service members stationed at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, Eglin Air Force Base in Florida, Eielson Air Force Base in Alaska, Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Fort Polk in Louisiana, and Fort Sill in Oklahoma.

Summer time typically means moving time in the military. This is the perfect time to get to know your neighbors. Whether you are new to the community, or have been around to see moving trucks and neighbors come and go, summer is the perfect time to forge new relationships. Knowing your neighbors, helps build a strong support network, builds a sense of community, provides a safer community, and you might just meet a life-long friend. If you aren’t sure where to start, here are some simple tips to get to know your neighbors:
Say Hello – The neighborhood welcoming committee may no longer knock on doors with a fresh dessert to make a formal introduction. However, it doesn’t need to be formal – wave hello or smiling is a good way to start.
Spend time outdoors – You are more likely to see and meet your neighbors, by just hanging outside of your home. This is a good way to spark up a conversation and make small talk.
Get Involved – Learn about volunteer opportunities, support groups, classes and community events and make a point to attend. Contact Army Community Services (ACS), Fort Bragg USO, the Armed Services YMCA to learn how you can give back to the community through volunteering. Check out the Corvias and Fort Bragg Facebook pages to learn about upcoming events. You are guaranteed to run into a neighbor or meet someone new.
Drop by your community center and attend resident events – Enjoy the amenities available at the community center. Hanging out by the pool, working out in the fitness center, or using the computer lab are just a few ways to meet people. Also, stay tuned for upcoming resident events.
Host a Welcome Party or Block Party – Invite neighbors over to your home or backyard for food, fun and to mingle. This is a great way to include children and get everyone together and begin to build relationships. If you don’t have time to plan the party yourself, try to get everyone involved in the planning process. Consider planning activities and games for neighbors of all ages. If you need a larger location, consider reserving a community center.

With the summer heat upon us, it is important to think about the safety of your pets. Follow these tips to keep your pets cool and hydrated.
Provide ample shade and water: Any time your pet is outside, make sure he or she has protection from heat and sun and plenty of fresh, cold water. In heat waves, add ice to water when possible. Tree shade and tarps are ideal because they don’t obstruct air flow. A doghouse does not provide relief from heat—in fact, it makes it worse.
Limit exercise on hot days: Adjust intensity and duration of exercise in accordance with the temperature. On very hot days, limit exercise to early morning or evening hours, and be especially careful with pets with white-colored ears, who are more susceptible to skin cancer, and short-nosed pets who, because of their short noses, typically have difficulty breathing. Asphalt gets very hot and can burn your pet's paws, so walk your dog on the grass if possible.
