OFFICER MOATS FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS

MARYVILLE, TN – Officer Moats Foundation is honored to announce the 2019 recipients of the second annual Kenny R Moats Scholarship. The Foundation has named two students to receive the Kenny R Moats scholarship for continuing education. Each recipient will receive a one-time award of $1,156 for educational expenses at the college, university, trade school or non-traditional higher education program of their choice.


The 2019 award winners are:
Sarah Carver – Daughter of Darin Carver with the Maryville Police Department. Sarah is a graduate of Heritage High School and will be pursuing a career in Economics and Law.
Sadie Bracamonte – Daughter of Douglas Folmar with the Blount County Sheriffs Office. Sadie is a graduate of Bearden High School and will be pursuing a career in Psychology and Criminology.


“We hope the scholarships will help the recipients meet their goals” says Officer Moats Foundation, “Both award winners show great potential and have admirable career goals”.

All applicants were required to be the dependent child of a First Responder (Law Enforcement, Fire or Ambulance). Along with traditional scholarship application questions, the students had to write a personal essay which included an explanation of how their parent’s First Responder career played a role in their life.

The Officer Moats Foundation is a 501C3 nonprofit organization created in memory of fallen MPD officer Kenny R Moats, who gave his life in the line of duty August 25th, 2016. The amount of the scholarship award is significant as it represents Officer Moats’ badge number 156.
