Headshot of Destiny BennettNational Park College (NPC) student Destiny Bennett received the Bob and June Luciew Military Scholarship. She is seeking her Associate of Applied Science in Medical Laboratory Technology.

Bennett severed eight years with the Arkansas Army National Guard and plans to continue her military career after graduating.

The Luciews are committed to helping students who have served in the armed forces complete their education. Mr. Luciew served in the U.S. Navy and Mrs. Luciew had a career as a registered nurse. They established an endowment in 2014 after attending an NPC graduation ceremony where they witnessed a large number of veteran students stand and be recognized.

“NPC was my very first college experience, it’s like a home away from my home, and I’m grateful for all the staff and professors that have taken the time to make sure I’m successful in my future endeavors. NPC will always hold the standard I seek in my future colleges,” said Bennett.

Medical Laboratory Technology program director Britt Turner said, “Destiny Bennett is a very deserving student, who goes above and beyond in achieving her educational goals.”
