PHOENIX -- September 5, 2013

University of Phoenix® and National Guard Association of the United States
(NGAUS), the nation’s oldest military association lobbying for the benefit of
the National Guard, awarded three full-tuition scholarships to Guardsmen to
complete a master’s degree program at University of Phoenix. The scholarships
were awarded to Army and Air National Guardsmen and NGAUS members ranked
Lieutenant Colonel (O-5) and below.

The 2013 University of Phoenix NGAUS Scholarship recipients are:

  * Jason Lefton, an officer in the New York National Guard from Clifton Park,
    N.Y., will pursue a Master of Business Administration degree. Lefton plans
    on using his degree to complete his military career. He wants to continue
    his career in personal finance – a career that was put on hold 12 years
    ago because of the attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11. As he
    prepares to participate in his fourth mobilization with the National Guard
    since 9/11, he wants to use his degree to provide for his family and
    possibly start his own business.
  * Timothy Ames, a warrant officer in the Hawaii National Guard from Waipahu,
    Hawaii, will pursue a Master of Science in Information Systems degree.
    Ames will use the degree to increase his strengths as a highly certified
    networking and security engineer. His long-term career goal is to serve an
    organization as a Chief Technology or Information System Officer.
  * James Driscolli, an officer in the Connecticut Air National Guard from
    West Hartford, Conn., will pursue a Master of Business Administration
    degree. Driscolli’s near-death experience while serving in Afghanistan
    helped him realize the importance of accountability and living life to the
    fullest. He plans on using his degree to develop his leadership skills as
    a military officer and help him transition into the civilian sector to
    eventually start his own business.

“NGAUS enjoys partnerships with a variety of corporations and institutions,
but none is more personally rewarding than our relationship with the
University of Phoenix,” said retired Maj. Gen. Gus L. Hargett Jr., the NGAUS
president. “This program enables us to provide the key to success, education,
to some very deserving young officers. I know the recipients and their
families are thrilled. And so is our entire association.”

“University of Phoenix is excited to work with NGAUS and provide our nation’s
Guardsmen an opportunity to achieve their education goals,” said Associate
Regional Vice President for University of Phoenix’s Military Division retired
Army Col. Garland Williams. “The 2013 University of Phoenix NGAUS Scholarships
demonstrate our corporate social responsibility to provide access to education
opportunities. These scholarships allow Guardsmen to increase their
professional skill sets through education to help them secure future
employment opportunities both in the military and beyond.”

Applications for the 2013 University of Phoenix NGAUS Scholarship were
accepted through May 30, 2013, and scholarship recipients were notified on
July 11, 2013.
