MOAA scholarships are awarded to veterans or family members of veterans attending a post-secondary institution who meet specific criteria set by members of the association. Candidates or an immediate family member must have served honorably in the US Armed Forces:  Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard; US Public Health Service, NOAA, Reserves, or Georgia National Guard. Also, recipients must be a resident of Appling, Atkinson, Bacon, Brantley, Charlton, Clinch, Coffee, Pierce, or Ware County or a county in which MOAA members reside. Special consideration is given to fallen warriors, disabled veterans, and their families.

Ms. Roberts is a 2004 graduate of Ware County High School and currently works at Satilla Care Center Nursing Home while attending OTC. After graduating from the respiratory care program at OTC, Takeshia plans to pass her state boards and work while continuing her education.

Takeshia’s father, Allen Roberts, accompanied her to the MOAA award ceremony. While serving in the US Army from 1975 to 1978, Mr. Roberts was stationed in Korea. Afterwards, he joined the reserves.

Takeshia’s son, who is three, is named after her father, Allen.
