Winners of the 3rd Annual GAFSED / Randy Carlisle Memorial Scholarship
The third annual GAFSED / Randy Carlisle Memorial Scholarship first place prize was awarded Friday night, March 18th, 2016 to Miss Madison Brooks of Monroe Georgia. Madison is the daughter of Brandon and Shelly Brooks of Pro-Tec Fire and Safety in Loganville. Madison is a junior at Georgia College & State University focusing on a degree in pediatric nursing. Her goal is to one day be working at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta in Pediatrics or the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Madison had an outstanding essay as well as a stellar letter of reference from one of her high school business education teachers. She also provided the scholarship committee with a long list of Community Service activities that she has been or currently is involved in. For these reasons along with many others the GAFSED / Randy Carlisle Memorial Scholarship Committee along with the GAFSED Board of Directors was proud to donate a check in the amount of $1,500.00 to Madison Brooks to further Madison in her college career. The other two finalists; Justin Franklin of Elberton Georgia and Erika Bowen of Buford Georgia each received a $250.00 scholarship to further their college careers. Justin is associated with Swift Fire Protection of Elberton, and Erika with Exit Pro in Buford.
These scholarships will be awarded each year to deserving high school seniors or college students who have ties to GAFSED and to our industry here in Georgia. For more details and deadlines for applications check out the scholarship link.
