Ruth May Seberry Veterans Scholarship Awardees 
Rockland Community College Scholarship 
Cristian Diaz and Jean Micheal Ryan, Army Afghanistan Veterans

The scholarships are named in honor of Ruth May Seberry, a lifelong Rockland County resident who provided for Chapter 333 in her estate. Seberry, who passed away in 2004, had inherited a large estate, but worked and lived frugally throughout her life. Each Rockland Community College scholarship has specific criteria, but all require the applicant to have county residency and an Honorable Discharge or to be the spouse or child of a service member who was killed in action. 
The Vietnam Veterans are dedicated to ensuring that, "Never again will one generation of veterans abandon another," and they offer emotional and financial support to recent combat veterans, in addition to helping the veterans of their era.

Each semester Rockland Community College enrolls more than 200 students who are U.S. military veterans. The Veterans Lounge, funded by the RCC Foundation, gives them a more veteran-friendly campus with a place to socialize with others who may share their common experiences and memories.
