From Fiji to University of San Francisco for San Diego’s Dominic Jaikaran
We couldn’t finish celebrating the Month of the Military Child this April without talking about our friend Dominic Jaikaran. In 2020, Atlantic Diving Supply recognized Dominic’s hard work and dedication with a Mission Give Back Scholarship, awarded each year to student leaders of military service members and first responders who have fallen, been injured or are missing in action.
Dominic is the epitome of a student leader. While still at Cathedral Catholic High School in San Diego, Dominic volunteered more than 700 hours for multiple organizations, including Challenged Sailors San Diego and the Travis Manion Foundation, where he helped rebuild a home in honor of his dad.
Thanks to the Mission Give Back Scholarship, Dominic is now studying in Fiji with Verto Education, earning college credits in environmental science, global health and cultural anthropology. He achieved a 3.53 GPA last semester, earning him Magna Cum Laude and Dean’s List designations. In fall 2021, Dominic will attend University San Francisco (USF) on an academic scholarship, where he will major in kinesiology and minor in psychology with a goal to attend medical school.
Congratulations, Dominic. We know you’re headed for big things!
