Jason Curodeau, an integrated studies major at Cal State San Bernardino’s Palm Desert Campus has received an $1,000 scholarship from a local Veterans of Foreign Wars post.
VFW Post 10149, of Cathedral City, selected Curodeau for his high scholarly achievements and his family’s contributions to the military. Curodeau’s father Paul is a Vietnam War veteran, serving as a U.S. Navy medical corpsman assigned to the 2nd U.S. Marine Division.
Jason’s goal is to become an elementary school teacher.
According to CSUSB spokesman Mike Singer, the VFW post is establishing a scholarship fund to give $1,000 annually to CSUSB students who are veterans that served in foreign conflicts or are children of veterans that did the same.
