The chapter is honored to announce the first annual Kevin Carroll Scholarship for Excellence. The Kevin Carroll Scholarship for Excellence is the most prestigious scholarship offered by the chapter's Education Program. Kevin's legacy of service, leadership, mentoring and empowering others lives in this scholarship.
Kevin spent his life serving and supporting others. He was dedicated to his family, friends, colleagues and especially the American warfighter. He spent the majority of his adult life serving the people. He began his career serving as an enlisted soldier in the U.S. Army and attending college. Kevin's civilian career began in the U.S. Coast Guard as a contract specialist. He eventually moved back to the Army, rose through the ranks and ultimately retired from the Senior Executive Service, where he led the Army's Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems.
Education was one of the pillars of Kevin's success. He obtained his undergraduate and postgraduate degrees from the University of Maryland at College Park, where he was a proud Terrapin and supported his alma mater. Kevin ensured that all of his employees had the opportunity to further their education throughout their careers. The chapter and its education program were important to him because of the opportunities presented to others. The program became part of the reason he supported and always drove participation in the chapter's largest fundraising event-AFCEA Belvoir Industry Days.
The chapter annually awards scholarships to qualified students pursuing degrees in the STEM fields and those supportive of national security. Since 2005, the AFCEA Belvoir Scholarship program has awarded over $1,200,000 to deserving students and schools in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. Proceeds from all chapter events and sponsorships go directly to our scholarship, community and grant programs.
