Residential and commercial electronic security services provider Vector Security announced recently that Janeen Bligen has been named as the winner of its 2011 John Falcone Scholarship Program.
The scholarship is named in honor of John Falcone, an 18-year veteran of the Poughkeepsie Police Department in New York, who was killed earlier this year while attempting to save the life of a three-year-old kidnap victim.
"What better way can you keep a hero’s memory alive? This program rewards a man or woman who wants to serve the public as Officer Falcone did," said Vector’s Kim Sears.
Vector offered the scholarship through the City of Poughkeepsie High School, with the inaugural award occurring with the 2011 graduating class. Bligen will be attending Cazenovia College in the fall to pursue a degree in criminal justice.
