Sgt. Nicole Gee Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship is in memory of Sgt. Nicole Gee. She was a 2016 Oakmont High School graduate. She was one of the 13 U.S. service members killed in an attack in Kabul, Afghanistan on August 26, 2021. Nicole has been described as a ‘model Marine’ who loved her job. While she was at Oakmont, she played on the softball team and remained in contact with several of her former teachers. Nicole is a hometown hero. Her life and service to our country will never be forgotten.
This scholarship will be awarded to a senior at Oakmont that will be enlisting in any branch of the military. We hope this scholarship money can help that student with expenses to travel home and see their family.
