The Tioga County Board of Commissioners established the Tioga County Board of Commissioners Volunteer First Responders Scholarship Fund at the Mansfield University Foundation to provide scholarships for volunteer first responders residing in Tioga County who are enrolled in a qualified academic program at Mansfield University. The Tioga County Board of Commissioners recognizes the increasingly complex world first responders operate in. Science, technology, communications and policy are constantly and rapidly changing and evolving. Therefore, it is critical that our county's volunteer first responders master the challenges of today and tomorrow. The Tioga County Board of Commissioners Volunteer First Responders Scholarship Fund helps ensure that our county's volunteer first responders are fully prepared to meet these challenges by providing increased opportunities to support their educational needs in grateful recognition of their service.
"We all witness the bravery of firefighters, paramedics and other volunteer first responders when they are called to help our family, friends or neighbors in an emergency," said Foundation Executive Director Mindy Engel. "Volunteer first responders are the guardians of our communities. Through this generous partnership between the Mansfield University Foundation and the Tioga County Commissioners, this scholarship honors the distinctive role first responders play in the community and creates a pathway for them to pursue their education at Mansfield University."
Recipients of the Tioga County Commissioners Volunteer First responders Scholarship are Chad Daughtery, Breyann Campbell and Brad Boyce from the Wellsboro Fire Department and Laura Young from the Morris Fire Department.
