Placer 10-35 Foundation Announces Scholarships
The Placer 10-35 Foundation, a non-profit association that assists Placer County peace officers in times of personal and organizational tragedy, is proud to announce the recipients of their first college scholarships.
The Cameron Buchanan Memorial Scholarship was established in honor of the 8-year-old son of Placer County Sheriff's Deputy Andrew Buchanan, who died of cancer. The recipient of the $1,000 scholarship was Cooper Sage from Del Oro High School. He will be attending Point Loma Nazarene University and studying nutrition & dietetics. The scholarship was offered to students interested in a career in law enforcement or nursing.
A second scholarship for $1,000 was awarded to Aman Uppal, who recently graduated from Del Oro High School in Loomis and will be attending UC Davis this fall. Aman would like to become a doctor of pediatric medicine. The third scholarship, for $500, was awarded to Courtney Smith, who also just graduated from Del Oro High School and who plans to attend UC Davis this fall to study nursing.
Submissions for the scholarships were solicited from the community.
The 10-35 Foundation is a non-profit fraternal & benevolent association. They also are available to assist the families of slain peace officers throughout the region. The foundation is committed to celebrating the mission of the law enforcement officer and providing assistance when the inevitable tragedy occurs in this dangerous profession. "10-35" is the police radio code for "officer needs back-up."
