Piloting a path to a new career

Molly O’Malley, ’25, recipient of Salute to Service Scholarship

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.”
