Scholarship Available for Anne Arundel County High School Seniors

Lance Corporal Eric Herzberg, USMC and Lance Corporal William Taylor Wild, IV, USMC Scholarship Fund

Lance Corporal Eric William Herzberg

The Lance Corporal Eric William Herzberg and Lance Corporal William Taylor Wild IV Scholarship (Herzberg-Wild Scholarship) was established at CFAAC by anonymous donors to honor two fallen Marines, Eric W. Herzberg and Taylor Wild IV, who were both Anne Arundel County residents. Both were proud U.S. Marines who dedicated their lives to protecting and defending our country. Eric joined the Marine Corps right after graduation. He was killed in action in Al Anbar, Iraq on October 21, 2006. Taylor deployed to both Afghanistan and Kuwait. He died in a mortar explosion during a training exercise at Hawthorne Army Depot on March 18, 2013.
