Dana Osborne was named the 2015 recipient of the Battalion Chief Steve Niswonger Annual Memorial Scholarship. Each year, a full scholarship will be awarded to one deserving student who has been accepted to the department’s Firefighter 1 and 2 classes. To be eligible, the student must complete an application process including an essay on why they want to serve their community as a firefighter. A committee comprised of Shirley Niswonger and several staff members and firefighters with the department chose this year’s recipient based on who best embodies the qualities and characteristics of Niswonger from all applicants. Congratulations, Dana!
