Piloting a path to a new career
Major Molly O’Malley is the first recipient of the Veterans Alumni Council’s Salute to Service Scholarship.
O’Malley was in the Marine Corps for 12 years as a helicopter pilot where she learned to make split-second decisions.
She has since become a new mom, military spouse, and student. She is currently working towards her master’s degree in speech-language pathology through the Arnold School of Public Health this semester and plans to graduate in 2025.
“My military career honed some of my best traits: a dedication to excellence, a desire to overcome challenges and a drive to improve the lives of others,” O’Malley said. “I’m excited and eager to use the experience and skills that I possess to succeed in both new and familiar ways as a student and speech-language pathologist.”
