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 2022 of James River High School were awarded $1,000.00 scholarships each to support their higher education in the fall. These scholarships were awarded to Seth Spickard and Dakota Guilliams. Both of these young men stood out due to their high academic and extracurricular performance. Dakota has played a myriad of sports and clubs including football, wrestling and SCA as well as being involved in his local fire department in his hometown of Buchanan. Dakota is planning to use his higher education to seek a career in the medical field. Seth is an accomplished Marching Band member with extensive volunteer experience including the Botetourt Food Pantry, blood drive and 4-H groups. Seth is planning to use his higher education to seek a career in Federal Law Enforcement.
Scholarships are administered by the Community Foundation Serving Western Virginia.
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.
