Sheriff Ackal announced that Tiffanie Brashear of Iberia Parish has been named the recipient of an academic scholarship from the Louisiana Sheriffs' Program for the 2013-2014 school year. She resides in New Iberia and plans to attend the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Her parents are Troy and Stephanie Brashear.
The Sheriffs' Scholarship is made possible by the Louisiana Sheriffs' Honorary Membership Program (LSHMP). Louisiana Sheriffs' provide scholarships to graduating high school students from each parish where the Sheriff is an affiliate of the Program.
Qualities such as academic achievement, leadership and character are considered in making selections of Sheriffs' scholarship recipients. The only limitations are that applicants be permanent residents of Louisiana; scholarships be utilized in higher education within the State; and students be enrolled as full-time, undergraduate students. Scholarships will be awarded in sixty-three parishes throughout the state.
"Devon Landry and Victorian Flugence were named as alternates so that in the event the recipient is unable to take advantage of the scholarship award, the alternate (first and/or second) can do so," according to the Sheriff.
In closing Sheriff Ackal said, "Academic awards by the Louisiana Sheriffs' Scholarship Program to Louisiana students demonstrate what the LSHMP is all about. This is one of our finest accomplishments. It invests in Louisiana's future and gives something back to our community. This would not be possible without the kind and generous support of Iberia Parish's Honorary Members."
