Dolores Incremona Endowed Scholarship

Dolores Incremona Endowed Scholarship

For Dolores Incremona, earning her bachelor’s degree in political science from Saint Leo College in 1980 fulfilled a long-held desire. After graduating from high school in Paterson, N.J., Dolores enrolled in college, attended classes for a year and then, at the age of 21, enlisted in the Air Force.

When Dolores received her first assignment at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, FL, she decided it was time to complete her college degree so she would be able to advance her career. She enrolled in her first Saint Leo College course immediately and, five years later, completed her degree.

This foundation made it possible for Dolores to become a commissioned officer, to earn a master’s in international relations and, after a myriad of command assignments, to serve on General Norman Schwarzkopf’s Central Command staff during Operation Desert Storm.

As an Air Force major, Dolores carried out many critical assignments, displaying enthusiasm, a talent for organization and cool decision-making skills. She used these talents to serve her country and Saint Leo University. In retirement, Dolores has been an active and dedicated member of the Saint Leo Alumni Association board of directors since 2003. “As a board member, I met students and parents at alumni events and have come to really appreciate what Saint Leo offers to all of our students, everywhere,” Dolores says.

“In some small part, I am able to help someone attend a college that educates each student for a lifetime—and a lifestyle.”—Dolores Incremona ’80
