Hadaller awarded ICMA-RC scholarship

PORT ORCHARD — Robin Hadaller of Port Orchard has been awarded an ICMA-RC Public Employee Memorial Scholarship for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Hadaller will be attending Western Oregon University. Thirty surviving children and spouses of fallen firefighters, police officers and other state and local public sector employees across the nation have been awarded the post-secondary educational scholarships for the upcoming academic year.

“It is an honor to present Robin with a scholarship to help further her education,” said Bob Schultz, ICMA-RC president.

“The ICMA-RC Memorial Scholarship award honors the memory of Robin’s father, Matthew Hadaller, who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty and pays tribute to all public employees who lost their lives serving their communities.”

Individuals are eligible to apply for the ICMA-RC Memorial Scholarship if they are the child or spouse of a local or state government employee who has died in the line of duty and planning to study full-time at an accredited two- or four-year college or university, or vocational-technical school. Applicants are selected based on factors such as financial need, academic record, demonstrated leadership in school and community activities, honors and work experience.

ICMA-RC memorial scholarships are presented annually, the organization said. ICMA-RC and its board of directors established the fund in 2001 and have raised more than $1 million and awarded scholarships to more than 300 students from across the nation.
