Boise State University’s School of Public Service was awarded the AT&T Public Safety Hero Scholarship. The school received $18,500, which will support two of its students pursuing military science. The check was presented at a ceremony held on-campus in February and received by Lieutenant Colonel John Hawbaker, BSU professor of military sciences.
The scholarship dollars will benefit ROTC students AJ Counter and Todd Hall. The event was attended by university officials, local and state leadership and dignitaries in the local military community, and students, emphasizing the interest in the future of public safety. This scholarship continues to align with AT&T’s long-standing commitment to support academic programs furthering public safety efforts, and as Idaho continues to grow, the needs for public safety will too.
By offering opportunities like this, AT&T can help make it possible for future generations to pursue careers in public safety and further contribute to keeping Idaho safe.
