Captain Jacob Dixon III, Memorial Scholarship
This year marks the 35th annual Dixon Memorial Scholarship. Capt Dixon was a 1974 graduate of General H.H. Arnold High School, Wiesbaden, who died in a civilian airplane crash in 1982. The following year, his mother, Mrs. Joyce Dixon, established a scholarship in her son’s name to the highest scoring Wiesbaden High School senior scholarship applicant. The WCSC is honored to facilitate this scholarship annually on behalf of the Dixon family.
