DAVIS, Calif. -- John Gomez, a senior at Davis Senior High School, speaks to 
friends and families after receiving the Frederick C. Branch Scholarship from 
Sgt. Sean Powers (left), recruiter, Marine Recruiting Station Sacramento, and 
Staff Sgt. William Hafel, IV (right), during a presentation here, May 15, 
2015. Gomez plans to attend Hampton University, a historically black 
university in Hampton, Va. The Frederick C. Branch Scholarship is named after 
the first African American officer in the Marine Corps. It provides up to 
$180,000 for college tuition and assistance.  Gomez was selected to receive 
the prestigious Frederick C. Branch Scholarship after competing against other 
candidates throughout the central valley region. An avid volunteer, Gomez 
clocked over 200 volunteer hours through the Davis Food Co-op and the Davis 
Children's Nutcracker as a group leader. His path has been challenging, as his 
older brother, James, suddenly passed away in 2013 at the age of 20 years old. 
Gomez said his brother's death had a profound impact on him, but he persevered 
to succeed and achieve a 3.84 GPA. (photo by Staff Sgt. Jacob H. Harrer /
