Betty Rogers Wanat Scholarship

The Fleet Reserve Association Virginia Beach Branch 166 established this scholarship in 2016 in honor of Ms. Betty Rogers Wanat. Betty served her country as a U.S. Navy Cryptologist and later served as Staff Officer with the Armed Forces Security Agency. Her husband, T. Frank Wanat, CTC, USN was a Pearl Harbor Survivor. Betty was among many proud recipients of the 50th Anniversary Congressional Commemorative Medal awarded to Pear Harbor survivors and next of kin. She was an active member and volunteer serving in many clubs and groups that support our military men and women.
