The Captain Francis S. Kim Memorial Scholarship was established in 2014 by the alumni of the UW-Madison ROTC program to recognize an outstanding cadet or veteran who embodies the values and leadership of Captain Franky Kim, a member of the 2006 UW-Madison Army ROTC commissioning class.

According to the news release, Hineline was selected based on his exemplary character, resiliency, academic achievement and ability to positively lead and influence others. The scholarship’s stewardship committee is proud to have Hineline as the 2020 scholarship recipient, and wish him the best in his military career.
