Pursue an Education in Criminal Justice/Forensics

The various members of the American Criminal Justice System are truly our nation’s frontline leaders.  Whether it is a police officer, an emergency communications operator, an investigator, any of the members of the court, or the various forensic experts, the men and women who devote their lives to the mission, cause, and profession of the administration of criminal justice place themselves in a critical gap. 

 

Serving in this area of public service is particularly and increasingly difficult.  Young men and women who want a career in the area of criminal justice administration should do so knowing that much is expected and with technology and social needs evolving there is an increasing emphasis on new training and more education.

The La Habra Police Memorial Foundation, Inc. is glad to support tomorrow’s frontline leaders emerging from our community.

 

The Osornio Scholarship was established in May of 2011. One graduating senior student from La Habra High School/North Orange County ROP Legal and Law Program is awarded a $500 scholarship. The goal of this scholarship is to ease the financial burden for students who are entering higher education.

When I realized how stressful finding the money for college could be, I knew I could not sit there and do nothing about it. As soon as I heard about the Education First scholarship, offered by the La Habra Police Memorial Foundation, I immediately saw an opportunity to ease the financial burden my family and I were experiencing. The LHPMF made the process of applying easy, and I felt comfortable throughout the short interview. It was clear that everyone at the LHPMF truly wants to see students succeed in higher education, and I was ecstatic to find out I was a recipient. This scholarship money will help me pay for various school supplies, books, and my tuition. In the end, I could not be more grateful for the opportunity that the LHPMF has given me and other students to pay for higher education and ultimately achieve their dreams in life. Submitted by M. Arp
