WACO, Texas (Feb. 6, 2017) – When Baylor University student veteran Nick Harrington walked into a local Subway restaurant to meet with the university’s VA benefits coordinator, he expected to have a quick sandwich and fill out some paperwork. Instead, he was met by a representative from Soldier’s Wish, who presented the sophomore communication sciences and disorders major with a $5,000 scholarship. As Harrington battles a rare form of thyroid cancer, the funds will help him pay rent on his apartment.
