Ten Marines awarded year-long professional scholarships

Conference Schedule

Conference Schedule

As part of the USMCCCA’s efforts to assist and mentor today’s combat correspondents, our board last year approved a decision to develop a scholarship program for our Distinguished Performance Award winning Marines in lieu of a check for $100.

To that end we have asked for support from the membership and our Foundation to pay for and provide scholarship to several of our winners.

This year we are partnering with Lynda.Com, which provides nearly 6,000 web based training courses on many areas of web design, photography, software development and a myriad of other business and communications topics.

We are proud to announce that 10 Marines will be receiving their one-year membership to (a $350 value) to sharpen their skills in the classes of their choosing. Please note that if you are the recipient of one of these certificates you will need to contact CCHQ to get your seat by 15 Sep 2017 or we will award this opportunity to another Marine.

This years’ recipients are:

Sgt Elize McKelvey — Military Graphic Artist of the Year
Sgt Justin Fisher — Operational Documentation
Sgt Isaac Ibarra — Mil. Photographer of the Year and Mil. Videographer of the Year
Sgt Daniel Kujanpaa — Operational Documentation
Cpl. Amaia Unanue — Photojournalism
LCpl. Miguel Rosales — News Photo
Cpl Aaron Patterson — Feature Photo
LCpt Devan Gowans — Multimedia Story
Sgt Brian Burdett — Video Feature Story
Sgt Ian Leones — Feature Story

If you are one of the Marines above, we encourage you to attend our annual Conference & Training Symposium in San Diego, Aug 21-24. If you can’t make it for the whole event, please try to make it to the Awards banquet at 1800 Aug. 23. Uniform is Dress Blues. All Distinguished Performance winners will receive the banquet meal free of charge. If you are planning to attend, please let Jack Paxton, executive director, know ASAP. His email:
