Daniel P. Delaney has been awarded an Air Force ROTC scholarship to attend a host college or university. High school seniors from across the United States are selected after a competitive application process based on comprehensive test scores, scholastic achievement, school officials' evaluations, extra-curricular activities, and community involvement. The value of a scholarship may exceed $100,000, depending on the student's choice of school and the type of scholarship offered. Upon graduating from college and completing the ROTC program, the cadets are commissioned as second lieutenants in the Air Force. The new lieutenants select and enter various career fields to train as pilots, navigators, engineers, medical, personnel, business management fields, and special operations.
Delaney is the nephew David and Joani Thompsen of Inlet Vista Drive, Chugiak, Alaska.
