BrickHouse Security Awards $10,000 Education Scholarship to Wounded Police Officers
On Wednesday, June 21, 2017, BrickHouse Security’s CEO Todd Morris awarded $10,000 in education scholarships to James Awbrey and Greg Kernc, at the Indianapolis BrickHouse Security office.
BrickHouse Security, a premier supplier of surveillance and security solutions to consumers, businesses, law enforcement, and government agencies, is pleased to announce the winners of our 2017 scholarship program. Each year, $10,000 is awarded to up to 3 police officers who have been injured in the line of duty, and can be shared with their spouse and children as well. The scholarship, awarded to police officers wounded in the line of duty and their families, is in its fourth year.
"“We enjoy awarding this scholarship to police officers and their families each year,” Todd Morris says. “It allows us the opportunity to give back to our customer community, impacting their lives in a meaningful way.”"
This year’s scholarship winners both have unique stories that showcase their heroism, their views on the importance of higher education, and their love for their families, who will ultimately be the recipients of their scholarship awards this year. Officer James Awbrey of Indiana, who was struck by a speeding vehicle at a traffic stop and left a paraplegic, wants to help his daughter Abigail earn a degree in Elementary Education. Officer Greg Kernc of Ohio, whose squad car was struck by an unheeding vehicle and left him with back and knee injuries that required an early medical retirement, intends to assist his daughter Courtney in earning a degree in Chemical Engineering.
