“For 16 years, the Exchange has been honored to reward
military students who make it their mission to succeed in the classroom through
the You Made the Grade program” said Robins Exchange general manager, Stephanie
“Soldiers’ or airmen’s children face unique challenges,
including making multiple moves during their academic careers,” Stephanie
Wilson said, noting Department of Defense Education Activity reports that most
military children move six to nine times before finishing high school. “These
students deserve to be recognized for their achievements, and the Robins
Exchange is happy to thank them for a job well done.”
