Waldorf College recently awarded Vincent Harris and Penny Durio each a Hero Behind the Hero Scholarship.

The scholarship, which honors the spouses and children of active-duty public safety personnel (firefighters, law enforcement officers, EMTs and dispatchers) and military men and women, covers tuition for up to 24 months for one specific degree program with Waldorf.

Harris, of Locus Grove, Ga., and Durio, of West Fargo, N.D., are excited about winning the scholarships and eager to start their education with Waldorf. Durio plans to use the scholarship to seek a bachelor’s degree in business administration while Harris is set to double-major in business administration and organizational leadership.

Waldorf, a private liberal arts college based in Forest City, Iowa, offers residential and online, regionally accredited bachelor’s degrees.

Students can earn a bachelor's degree online with the added benefit of attending one to four required, three-day, accelerated courses. These courses are offered tuition-free in a classroom format and are conducted at popular locations across the U.S.
