Corvias Foundation, a private, charitable foundation and the charitable arm of Corvias, has been committed to supporting military families in the pursuit of higher education since 2006. This year, Corvias Foundation has awarded college scholarships of up to $50,000 to 11 outstanding high school students, marking the 13th class of scholarship recipients.
The scholarships provide reliable, recurring financial assistance over each student’s four years of study, as well as a support network that is committed to their academic and professional growth. Students receive scholarships in the amount of up to $12,500 per year for four years to pursue a secondary education at colleges and universities around the country.
“This scholarship will truly allow my future educational endeavors to thrive. I now have the opportunity to become more involved in school and community activities such as clubs and volunteering, pursue internships and research, and possibly even study abroad,” said 2018 scholarship recipient, Alicia Mitchell, of Fort Meade, Maryland. “Now knowing that there is nothing standing in the way of my future goals, I feel ready to begin this new and exciting chapter in my life.”
Corvias Foundation awarded the scholarships based on merit and need. Each student was required to respond to four questions that highlighted different aspects of their lives as students and as members of an active-duty military family. This fall, each student will be attending the four-year institution of their choice to pursue their academic careers.
“Each of these students, children of military service members, strive to give back like their parents but in their own ways,” said John Picerne, Foundation Founder. “Being able to support each of them means more to us than just writing a check, but also through ongoing academic support, mentoring, and internship opportunities.”
Since 2006, Corvias Foundation has awarded more than $7.6 million through 397 scholarships to military spouses and children at 13 different Army and Air Force installations. Among this year’s scholarship recipients are aspiring engineers, doctors, lawyers, scientists, and entrepreneurs.
“I see college as an investment for my future, and I believe that Corvias Foundation is helping me to set myself up for a promising future,” shared Amayah Edwards, of Hurlburt Field, Florida. “The support that comes with the scholarship is extraordinary and is a big boost to my college experience. I will be provided with resources that help me tread through my college journey.”
The 11 graduating seniors are the children of active-duty service members stationed at Edwards Air Force Base in California, Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Fort Meade in Maryland, and Hurlburt Field in Florida. To read more about the scholars and for the full press release, click here.
American Pool Service is managing Corvias community pools this season. Residents will need to show their pool pass and military I.D. before entering the pool area. Families who do not have a pool pass are encouraged to visit your Community Office. A pool use addendum will need to be signed to receive your pool pass. Community pools are for Corvias resident use only and one pass is issued per family.
After school begins (August 13th) through Sept 3rd the pools will be open from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. American Pool Service reserves the right to close the pool for inclement weather or pool maintenance.
As a reminder, some pools are not open 7 days a week but residents may utilize any open pool (not just the pool for the neighborhood they reside in). Please see the 2018 pool schedule below:
- Forsyth pool will be open 7 days per week
- Ellis pool will be closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays
- Warner Peterson pool will be closed on Mondays
- McClellan pool will be closed on Wednesday
To make a day at the pool enjoyable for all, here are some rules we ask residents to follow:
- No glass or pottery-type containers allowed in the pool area.
- All patrons must wear swimsuits that are appropriate for public appearance.
- Inflatable rafts, water wings/floaties and toys are not permitted in the pool (Guidance from CDC).
- Young children may wear Coast Guard approved life vests in the pool.
- Children who are not potty-trained must wear swim diapers while in the pool.
- All children under the age of 14 years old must be accompanied by an adult who is at least 18 years of age.
- No pets are allowed in the pool area.
- Wet bathing suits are not allowed in the Community Center.
A complete list of pool rules is available online and posted at each facility.
Over the next several months, Corvias will be replacing roofs on over 1,000 homes at Fort Riley. Homes were selected based on the age of their current roof. Our construction team will be working on an accelerated schedule to stay ahead of solar panel installation which will follow shortly afterwards on select homes.
Construction will be performed Monday - Friday between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., weather permitting. Most roof replacements will be complete within three to five days from start to finish. Corvias will notify affected residents the week before construction is slated to begin on their home via e-mail and a door hanger.
To protect the integrity of the roof, residents with satellite dishes on their roof will be required to have them removed and relocated to a pole on the ground. We understand this may cause an inconvenience to impacted residents so we recommend you take the following steps to minimize interruption to your service as much as possible:
- If you do not have satellite television, you do not need to do anything.
- If you do have satellite television, Corvias has negotiated with a local installer- Advanced Satellites- to relocate satellite dishes from roofs onto the ground instead. Please call (785) 827-3474 to schedule your satellite dish relocation.
- Alternatively, residents may work directly with their satellite provider (Dish or DirecTV) to relocate their dish.
- Corvias will reimburse residents impacted by the roof project for the cost of dish relocation, up to $75. Residents will need to bring in a copy of their receipt and reimbursement may take up to thirty days.
- We recommend that you make arrangements to have this done in advance of your roof replacement so that there is very little interruption to your service.
- Residents who do not schedule their dish relocation prior to work beginning on their roof, may experience extended interruption to their satellite service.
We are excited to bring these upgrades to Fort Riley and appreciate your patience during the construction.
The 14th annual Fort Riley Outdoorsman Group (FROG) banquet will be held at Riley’s Conference center on Friday, July 27th at 5:30pm. For ticket information visit/message the FROG Facebook Page or call 785-223-3055.
