On November 11, Ismae Bailey (Class of 2021) was awarded the Marine Corps Scholarship at the second annual Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation dinner, held at the Seaport Hotel in Boston. Ismae has been awarded this prestigious scholarship for each of the three years she has attended Curry College. 

In addition to the Marine Corps Scholarship, Ismae was also awarded the first John McDermott Honorary Scholarship. An international recording star, Mr. McDermott is a champion of veterans both in the United States and in his home country of Canada.

Ismae is a double major (Forensic Science and Biology) and is working toward becoming a Death Investigator.  She has been spending her summers working in the Las Vegas Coroner's Office and hopes to return there full-time after she graduates from Curry College.
