High School Grad Honored with 2019 ADS Mission Give Back Scholarship

Kellam High School Grad Honored with 2019 ADS Mission Give Back Scholarship 

ADS, Inc. has announced that Kellam High School graduate Holly Hertzog is the 2019 Mission Give Back Scholarship Awards Program recipient.

The scholarship is awarded annually to dependents of U.S. military, law enforcement and first responders who have fallen, been injured or missing in action in the line of service. Hertzog was introduced as this year’s $5000 scholarship winner by ADS CEO Jason Wallace during last week’s Warrior Expo at the Virginia Beach Convention Center.

“Holly is an honors graduate with a record of volunteerism in the community and strong participation in extracurricular school activities,” Wallace said. “She is just the type of student and future leader we envisioned when we established the Mission Give Back scholarship. She makes our entire community proud.”

Hertzog plans to study nursing at UVA this Fall. She is the daughter of Master Chief Edward Joseph Hertzog III, a US Navy SEAL with 25 years of service to our country. He was a member of the Navy Parachute Team—the Leap Frogs—and the leading Petty Officer of a SEAL Platoon deployed to Afghanistan. He also spent five years as an Assault Team Member of SEAL Team Six and was awarded five Bronze Stars for heroic action in combat.

At Virginia Beach’s Kellam High School, Holly Hertzog was the varsity swim and dive team captain, as well as a member of the National Honor Society and Student to Student, a club for new students and military students. She also volunteers her time with Operation Smile and CHKD.

ADS established its Mission Give Back Foundation last year to more effectively support charitable efforts in the local military, law enforcement and emergency response communities.

Applications are now being accepted for next year’s scholarship program. Those applying must be high school seniors and dependents of U.S. military, law enforcement and first responders who have fallen, been injured or listed as missing in action in the line of service. Scholarship amounts will range from $1,000 to $5,000 each. Full details and application requirements can be found at MissionGBF.org.
