Clarkson University student Jason Keener of Eliot, Maine, was selected as a winner of the New York City Post Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Scholarship Award, which recognizes outstanding performance in engineering studies. In addition to being honored with the award, Keener will receive a $1,000 scholarship to assist in his academic pursuits.
Keener, a junior, is a Civil Engineering major at Clarkson and maintains a strong academic standing, as well as participating as an active member in the Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC). For two years, he has participated as a member of the Army ROTC Ranger Challenge Team, competing against 21 other universities in New England and New York.
“Cadet Keener is an outstanding young man and has remarkable scholarship, athletic and leadership qualities,” said Lieutenant Colonel Scott Hill, professor of Military Science at Clarkson. Keener graduated from U.S. Army Airborne School last summer earning his silver jump wings.
The Society of American Military Engineers is a national organization whose mission is to promote and facilitate engineering support for national security by developing and enhancing relationships and competencies among uniform services, public and private sector engineers, and related professionals. The New York City Post SAME Scholarship fund is an independently incorporated entity that maintains the post’s scholarship fund and awards scholarships to deserving students of engineering and related sciences.PHOTO CAPTION: Clarkson junior Jason Keener receives the 2004-2005 New York City Post of the Society of American Military Engineers Scholarship Award in recognition of his outstanding performance in engineering studies.
