10th America's Service Heroes Scholarship Recipient
Staff Sgt Michael A. Vidick, a member of the U.S. Air Force for more than 11 years, has been chosen by Saint Martin's University as its 10th recipient of the America's Service Heroes Scholarship. The award was announced Nov. 3 at the University's Gala 2018, a major fundraising event for University student scholarships.
Vidick, originally from Pueblo, Colorado, joined the Air Force right out of high school and at 18 began his journey at the Air Force's Basic Training Gateway, Lackland Air Force Base, in San Antonio, Texas. From two combat tours in Iraq to a role as an agent with the Air Force's Office of Special Investigations (OSI), Vidick has shown an ability to complete every task and mission given. He holds five Air Force Commendation Medals and, most notably, one Army Commendation and one Army Achievement Medal earned during two combat tours in Iraq while embedded with Army Military Police units. He also has a second Army Achievement award for community service. These awards are rare achievements for most Air Force members.
Vidick completed an associate of applied science degree in police science in 2007 from the Community College of the Air Force. He is enrolled at Saint Martin's University as a criminal justice major. He holds a 3.72 cumulative GPA and aims to complete his Saint Martin's degree soon.
