Grace Hibbert was the recipient of the Col Matthew J Hearon Scholarship from ROTC at Eau Gallie High School. She exemplifies all the outstanding characteristics that my amazing friend, Matt portrayed, serving as the Florida National Guard Commander. It’s a privilege to honor you today Matt, and for many years to come.

Grace, we wish you continued success in your future endeavors at UCF and the military. Thank you to Matt’s Mom, Lily Jo Hearon, for being there today and speaking on her son’s behalf.
