Deborah Jaramillo receives Timothy J. Walsh APC I award

Alexandria, VA – The ASIS Foundation is pleased to announce that Deborah Jaramillo of the ASIS Northern Alabama Chapter is the winner of the prestigious Timothy J. Walsh APC I Award. The Walsh Award pays for tuition, transportation, hotel costs and course materials for the Asset Protection Course I (APC I, Concepts and Methods), to be held March 8-11 in San Francisco.

Jaramillo completed her bachelor’s degree in criminal justice in 2006. She is the facility security officer at Shearer & Associates Inc., an architectural and engineering-consulting firm, in Huntsville, Ala.

"Joining ASIS in 2006 has provided a platform for continued networking with other security practitioners and professional development opportunities," Jaramillo says. "With the support of ASIS headquarters, and most especially the Northern Alabama Chapter, I have been afforded the opportunity to rise above my greatest expectations."

Candidates for the Walsh Award must be nominated by their ASIS chapter, be members in good standing and have at least two years of security experience.

"Deb’s enthusiasm for the security field, her organizational skills and her willingness to commit her personal time in support of our chapter made her a solid candidate to mentor and develop as a future chapter leader," says Terry Odum, CPP, chair of the ASIS Northern Alabama Chapter.

The Walsh Award, introduced in 2004, recognizes the efforts of individuals striving for excellence within the security industry. Given twice a year, it is named in honor of Timothy J. Walsh, CPP, one of the early pioneers of ASIS International who served as the organization’s president in 1964-1965.
