WKU PD giving out two scholarships

BOWLNG GREEN, Ky. – The Western Kentucky Police Department awarded two students scholarship money Wednesday.

WKU PD awarded two students $500 total to go toward their education on the hill.

Those two students are Christopher Bussell and Dasean Tyus.

This is the third year the department has allowed officers to have facial hair, but in order to have facial hair, the officers must donate $25 to this special fund for the Faces of a Scholar scholarship.

The scholarship is a small part of the community focused policing style campus police are working to foster, Officer Tim Gray said.

Most years, only one student receives the scholarship, but this year, the two winners will split the money.
