May 31, 2018
The American Fire Sprinkler Association (AFSA) has offered assistance, through its online scholarship program, to 10 graduating high school seniors as they pursue their higher education goals. These national winners were randomly selected from 66,682 students who entered to receive a one-time $2,000 AFSA scholarship payable to their respective college, university, or trade school.
The ten national winners for 2017-2018 are:
• Vanessa Castellon, Chula Vista, California
• Isaac Dienes, Nelsonville, Ohio
• Katie Kohlman, Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania
• Lilia Nikoomanzar, Chandler, Arizona
• Daniel Popach, Marysville, Washington
• India Richardson, Prince George, Virginia
• Erik Simonsen, Redmond, Washington
• Devin Wade, Vandalia, Ohio
• Haley Wilkerson, Houston, Texas
• Zoe York, Cary, North Carolina
"Our hope is through the AFSA scholarship program we can educate high school and continuing education students to think about new and different options that they may not have previously considered as a career path and, moreover, that we can save lives by increasing awareness of the critical issue of fire safety," ssaid AFSA Director of Communications Nicole Duvall.
To be eligible, applicants must be a current high school senior planning to attend an accredited U.S. college, university or trade school in the coming fall.
