The Future Heroes Scholarship Program has been established by Owen Security Solutions to provide scholarships to the children of first responders to attend the college of their choice. The $500 scholarship will be awarded annually to a student in North Georgia who has demonstrated scholastic achievement, civic engagement, and leadership in his or her community. The deadline for submitting your application is March 23, 2017. Program details along with the application can be found at www.owensecurity.com/futureheroes.
“Every community in North Georgia witnesses the bravery of police officers, firefighters and other first responders. They work every day to keep us safe. This scholarship is another way we can recognize their daily selfless actions by helping their children achieve a more secure future through advanced education”, said company President Justin Owen. “Recognizing first responders and their families is very important to us”, he explained. “We established our Protect Our Local Heroes Program which provides all active police offices, firemen and EMTs with a Free Security System or a year monitoring service. This scholarship gives us a chance to do something more and focus on the children of first responders.”
The Owen Security’s Future Heroes Scholarship Program is open to high school students who live in North Georgia. All Georgia high school students, 15 or older, whose parent is a first responder are eligible to participate in a security industry scholarship program sponsored by the Electronic Security Association (ESA). An active member of the Georgia ESA chapter, Owen Security endorses ESA’s awards given to children of first responders through its national Youth Scholarship Program. The 2015 ESA Youth Scholarship Program will award a $7,500 scholarship to the first-place winner, and $2,500 to the second-place winner selected from applicants across the country. The Georgia chapter offers a $1,000 scholarship to a deserving Georgia student. Details can be found here: www.owensecurity.com/futureheroes.
