UMSL Optometry, HPSP scholars

UMSL Optometry students (from left) Marie Lulette Fermil, Kailey Utley, Jacquelyn Tyra and Jessica Arnoldy have each earned full-ride scholarships from the Army Health Professionals Scholarship Program. The four women, who have each been recently commissioned at the rank of second lieutenant, will be assigned to active duty – and promoted to the rank of captain – after they complete their optometric degrees.
