Civil engineering major and ROTC cadet Kevin Pham and 2nd Lt. Joshua D. Gonzalez, a Class of 2013 graduate (B.A. criminal justice), are the inaugural recipients of the Roy Lopez Scholarship Award of Valor, launched by Adriana Mraz, mother of Roy Lopez, who was in the university’s ROTC program until his death in 2012. The $2,500 scholarship will be awarded annually to one or more students in the university’s ROTC program. Selection is based on grade point average, financial need and demonstrated exceptional leadership and community service. The Roy Lopez Scholarship Award for Valor Endowment was established by Mraz with a $100,000 donation.
