Connection to General Shelton and the Board:

The Shelton Scholarship Program provides a unique experience—one that enables scholarship recipients to have direct contact and close relationships with General and Mrs. Shelton, and many of the Shelton board members. The Sheltons are invested in the scholars and their interests and passions, and this is reflected through their personal involvement in the program. Through their interactions with the Sheltons and the board members, the scholars receive enriching personal experiences and valuable career development.
