This scholarship recognizes the life and service of First Lieutenant Alex Wetherbee, United States Marine Corps. Alex was a member of the 3rd Assault Amphibian Battalion (Camp Pendleton) when he gave his life in service to his country near Fallujah in Iraq. He was actively involved with Outward Bound as an instructor and was an inspiration to others through his volunteer service and constant pursuit of new challenges. Through the generosity of many donors, Harry and Doris Wetherbee, Alex’s parents, established this scholarship fund to provide tuition assistance to the survivors of military service members killed in action who would like to attend an Outward Bound course.
