ATLANTA, Nov. 19, 2009 - The National Association of School Resource Officers said in a statement earlier this month that it has begun accepting nominations for the 2010 Wren Solutions School Resource Officer Scholarship Award.
Now in its second year, the award is part of a $10,000 donation pledged over a four year time period from Wren, an Atlanta-based provider of physical security solutions. This year’s award winner will receive $2,500 to help further their education.
“Since the scholarship program was put in place last year, it has achieved its goal of recognizing SROs who take proactive leadership roles in their organization and want to pursue an education to further that goal. Our 2009 winner, Elizabeth Harper, was an outstanding candidate and continues to serve her community as an officer while also balancing a challenging study schedule,” said Dick Caster, executive director of NASRO in a prepared statement. “With the scholarship this year, Wren and NASRO hope to once again offer the most committed SROs with the same opportunity: to advance their education and career, in turn bringing new ideas and expertise to school security and protection.”
The deadline for nominations is April 9, 2010. The winner will be announced at NASRO’s 20th Annual National Conference next summer in Louisville, Ky.
