The Police Benevolent Foundation Announces 2012 Scholarship Recipients

The Police Benevolent Foundation is proud to announce the recipients of its 2012 scholarships. These outstanding students have demonstrated academic excellence and deserve to be recognized. The Police Benevolent Foundation was founded for the purpose of addressing four major initiatives. These initiatives include: providing financial support to the families and survivors of officers killed in the line of duty, funding scholarships for well deserving youth, providing assistance to law enforcement personnel during disasters, and funding activities and services in support of law enforcement. Since it was established, the Foundation has raised more than $1 million dollars to support these initiatives.
 
It is with great pride that the Police Benevolent Foundation announces this year’s scholarship recipients. We would like to wish each recipient the best of luck and a prosperous future.

*Students of PBA members and students pursuing criminology degrees are eligible to apply for Police Benevolent Foundation Division Scholarships. Each application was carefully reviewed by the selection committee. Children of PBA employees (including field staff, division presidents and chapter presidents) are not eligible.
 
The Police Benevolent Foundation would especially like to recognize David Wagner of Jackson, GA. He is the 2012 recipient of the Police Benevolent Foundation Memorial Scholarship. To be eligible for this scholarship, the applicant must be a child or stepchild of a Southern States PBA member who was killed in the line of duty. David Wager is the son of Patrolman Richard Cash. Patrolman Cash was shot and killed during a traffic stop on January 3, 1996. Patrolman Cash had served with the Forest Park (GA) Police Department for 3 years and was 25 years old at the time of his death. He was survived by his wife and two children. David Wagers was just a baby when his father died, but he has grown up to be an outstanding young man. He was selected to receive the Police Benevolent Foundation Memorial Scholarship because of his academic achievement and community involvement.
