Lawrenceburg student receives $1,000 scholarship
from Kentucky law enforcement memorial foundation
Harrison Mark-Shane Evans of Lawrenceburg was recently awarded the Gerald F. Healy Kentucky Law Enforcement Memorial Foundation Scholarship, according to a press release.
Evans, a student at the University of Kentucky, was one of 25 recipients of the $1,000 scholarship. Evans is the son of Lexington Division of Police Detective Lora Harrison.
Founded in 1999, The Kentucky Law Enforcement Memorial Foundation’s original purpose was to build a memorial that would honor all Kentucky officers who have been killed in the line of duty, according to a press release.
Once the monument was completed in 2000, the organization expanded its efforts to include a financial endowment program, which helps Kentucky peace officers and their families with educational, medical and emergency relief.
In 2004, the foundation created this scholarship program to help law enforcement officers, public safety dispatchers and their families pay for college, the news release said.
“It is restricted to law enforcement officers and public safety dispatch personnel (current, retired or disabled) and their survivors or dependents.”
