From saving drowning children to keeping our streets safe, my father has been serving in the police force since 2006. Growing up in a bad part of town, my dad found a passion for keeping his family safe and wanted to expand in the ways he helps people. He knew being a police officer was his calling. He started off with patrolling and loved working night shifts. He always said "if you are calling 911 at night, you need more than a police officer, you need someone who cares. But then, he discovered a new calling. A school resource officer approached him and told him to consider applying for an open position in one of our local schools. He took up this offer and got the job! He was and still is excited to make a difference in kids lives. Everyday he goes to work and builds a sense of trust in these kids. He truly is making a difference to our future, hopefully even getting rid of some of the tensions between groups of people and cops. My dad has inspired me so much throughout the years. I hope, no matter what career path I choose to take, I can be just as influential and passionate as he is.

I am the daughter of a Police officer. My father has been a Police Officer since 2009. He has served a few different communities and loves every moment of it. He continuously takes classes offered to better himself to serve his community even better. He is such an inspiration for me to fight for my dreams and I know that I will be protected by the men in Blue.

I am applying for this scholarship for the simple fact of wanting to service my community. I work in healthcare now, however I feel as if this is the next step in the processes to achieve my goal as a paramedic. This scholarship would help me with my first step in going to EMT classes. I wish the best of luck to all who apply for it as well.

I'm applying for this scholarship because my father is a police officer on the Memphis Police Department and has been apart of their for 13+ years. I have seen my dad endure and handle situations like no other and build a name for himself that has gained him respect from fellow officers and the community. My father has worked for his name and loves his job as being one of the many to save people of the communities lives.

I’m applying because I want to further my career in the fire service. We are a small department and I don’t make much money, but I love what I do. I love serving the residents I work for so I want to give them the very best service possible. With this scholarship, I would be able to finish EMT school and pay for all my books, fees, etc.

Blake S  on 2/20/2020 10:39:09 AM

I am applying because my father is a fire lieutenant for the Hopkinsville Fire Department and has been employed with them for the last 16 years. I have watched him lead his crew for almost the entirety of my life.
