Vigilant Fire Company 2012 Education Scholarship

Published: 1/29/2012







DEADLINE: Application and material must be received no later than April 01, 2012







The Scholarship is a one-time award of $500.00 payable directly to the recipient to provide financial support to qualified students who demonstrate a commitment to a career in the field of public service.  Qualifying students exhibit high moral values, strong work ethic, unwavering integrity and desire to give back to their communities.  These inspirational qualities were inculcated in Russell Harkleroad, a 35 year volunteer of the Vigilant Fire Company who retired as Head Custodian of the West Seneca West Middle School. Russell passed away in 2010 but before his death, he worked hard to see this scholarship program achieved. His desire was to make an award available to an average student with outstanding personal character attributes, who likely would not qualify for scholarships, absent exceptional grades.
