Your support will make it possible for the Troutville Fire Department to provide scholarships to future first responders in their education and training.
The Troutville Fire Department proudly protects approximately 12,000 people living in an area of 56 square miles. Our department call volume is approaching 700 fire calls each year and is the busiest fire department in Botetourt County. A high percentage of our call volume stems from us providing resources to assist other fire departments; combining forces to provide faster and more efficient emergency services to our community. The Troutville Fire Department is all volunteer and a 501(c)(3) non-profit. We care deeply about the community in which we serve. We live here, we work here, and we raise our families here; so, we’re constantly trying to come up with new ways that we can give back to our neighbors that have given to us. This Tournament is just another form of public outreach that we consider to be so important for us to stay relevant and active in the community.
How does this program work?
Today, the Troutville Volunteer Fire Department strives to provide a strong public education and fire prevention and safety program for our immediate community and surrounding areas within Botetourt County. This Tournament will further their post high school education in Fire, EMS and Law Enforcement. In addition, current first responders in Botetourt County may apply for a scholarship if enrolled in a 2- or 4-year degree program in Fire, EMS or Law Enforcement. Two scholarships are offered annually.
Two graduating seniors from the Class of 2020 of Botetourt County High Schools were awarded $1,000.00 scholarships each to support their higher education in the fall. Reagan Mauck & Mikayla Stiltner from Lord Botetourt and James River High Schools respectively were chosen from the numerous qualified applicants. These two young ladies stood out due to their tremendous academic performance as well as their extra curricular involvement.
No scholarships were not awarded to the Class of 2021. We salute the Class of 2021 and offer our best wishes, but unfortunately the applications received did not meet the criteria to receive the scholarship.
Scholarships are administered by the Community Foundation Serving Western Virginia.
