Adrian & Corena Swanier Education Scholarship


Adrian & Corena Swanier Education Scholarship


“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” -Nelson Mandela

The Adrian & Corena Swanier Education Scholarship was established in 2010 to provide educational assistance for military brats. The program has awarded $50,000 to hard working military children worldwide.  

The Adrian & Corena Swanier Education Scholarship was named after Adrian and Corena Swanier.  They were both educators and mentors in their community for over 30 years.  They were inspirational grandparents to Ketia who left footprints on her life forever. Every summer her travel basketball team competed in a national tournament hosted in a different state each year. Adrian and Corena attended every year. The support, love and inspiration they gave Ketia, helped empower her into being the person she is today.
