AUSTIN — The Peace Officers’ Memorial Foundation (POMF), a charitable arm of the Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas (CLEAT), has announced its 2022 POMF Scholarship recipients.
Each year, the foundation presents scholarships to the dependents of Texas Law Enforcement officers who are either graduating high school seniors or enrolled in an accredited college/university. The POMF Scholarship Committee received and reviewed close to 70 applications from qualified students all over the state this year, which were divided into 17 predetermined regions, major cities, and major departments throughout Texas.
“We can’t help but to reflect on the young men and women who send in applications each year, knowing they live within a very special community and lifestyle. Children of law enforcement have a unique understanding of the sacrifices made by officers throughout the state, and yet continue on with a desire to make a difference in all our futures,” said Lt. Marvin Ryals, CLEAT President. “One of the Peace Officers’ Memorial Foundation’s primary objectives is to honor fallen officers and remember their sacrifices, and it is our great privilege to honor those officers by awarding these scholarships to help propel our next generation forward.”
