Thrasher Redefine Scholarship
Application Deadline May 30, 2018

Omaha, Nebraska – February 2, 2018 – Local home repair contractor Thrasher is pleased to announce a new scholarship opportunity for students entering into, or continuing, their education. The Thrasher Redefine Scholarship Fund will award two $1,000 scholarships each year, one award given to a student seeking a 4-year degree, and one seeking a trade school degree.

The scholarship was established to celebrate and expand upon Thrasher’s mission to redefine the construction industry. “To us, that means providing a remarkable homeowner experience, the best products and services, continually improving our craft as a team, and acting as an advocate for the community,” said Dan Thrasher, President, Thrasher. “But the message to ‘redefine’ can be embraced by anyone, and that’s the challenge we’re posing to the next generation by offering this scholarship.”

The application process invites students from all walks of life to share their take on the “redefine” message and what it means to challenge the status quo and create impact in their own community, school or workplace.

“We’re hoping to see creativity and sincerity in the applications we receive,” commented Jess Lightner, Content Manager, Thrasher, “and the tremendous potential we’ve seen within the youth in our own community gives me no doubt we’ll be inspired by the response.”

The annual deadline for applications is always May 30, and students may learn more and apply online at www.gothrasher.com/scholarship.

Nebraska American Legion Junior Law Cadet Program
Application deadline March 1, 2018

The American Legion Department of Nebraska Junior Law Cadet Program is held annually during the summer before the senior year of high school, typically during the middle of June, at the Nebraska State Patrol Training Academy in Grand Island. Completed applications and an endorsement from your school principal or superintendent must be submitted to your local American Legion Post Commander before March 1st. If you are interested in attending, the best local points-of-contact are your local Legion Post; and your high school principal or guidance counselor.

Every year, high school juniors from each of The American Legion’s 14 Districts in Nebraska are chosen to participate in the Junior Law Cadet Program. The purpose of the program is to allow male and female students the opportunity to explore and experience the various aspects of law enforcement training. Students participate in daily calisthenics and receive training in firearms, self-defense, fingerprinting, K-9 handling, accident and criminal investigation, lie detector testing, and state patrol car driving. Each year there is a separate male and female program, and students stay at the Nebraska State Patrol Training Academy in Grand Island.
