2019 CWF Scholar - Jennifer Armknecht
We are pleased to announce that the 2019-2020 Coastal Women’s Forum Scholarship has been awarded to
Ms. Jennifer Armknecht!
Jennifer is currently studying Early Childhood Education at Craven Community College. She is an active mom who is pursuing a higher education degree for the first time. She and her husband Dylan, a Marine who has served for 22 years, have four children, ages 7 to 13.
Together with their children, this military family has traveled throughout the US and several countries abroad. Jennifer’s husband will be retiring from active duty in 4 years and plans to pursue a career as a high school history teacher. Both Jennifer and Dylan want to have similar schedules as each other and their children. This is one reason why Jennifer decided to pursue an Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. The Early Childhood Education program focuses on hands-on learning through experiences rather than instructions. Jennifer loves to work with children, to inspire them, to watch them grow and develop.
Please join us in congratulating Jennifer.
We wish her all the best as she works towards obtaining her Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education.
