Katy resident is latest Texas Sentinels life scholarship recipient
SGT. Torrey Kramer, a 38-year-old self-employed artisan and Iraq war veteran who lives in Katy, is the newest recipient of the Texas Sentinels Foundation life scholarship award.
The award is given to Wounded Warriors in Texas by the non-profit Texas Sentinels Foundation, based in Houston. The Foundation was founded by Richard and Jeanne Filip, who also own the RE/MAX of Texas company that is the franchisor for RE/MAX in the state.
Recipients of the Texas Sentinels Foundation’s lifetime scholarship award benefit from continual financial support, life mentorship and career planning.
“This is an amazing opportunity,” SGT. Kramer said. “What I like about it – it’s not a hand out. It’s a hand up. I want to get back on my feet and going in a forward direction and not be in a position where I’m constantly relying on other people or outside sources. It’s giving me an opportunity to start a business and supporting that. The Texas Sentinels Foundation is helping me logistically and financially pursue that goal. It’s not a Band-Aid they can put on me now to make me feel better, but rather they’re setting up something that will be with me for the long haul.”
