Two Glenville State College students were recently named as recipients of a one-time scholarship specifically designated for students in the College’s Criminal Justice Department.
Colton Brandenburg and Dalton Holcomb, both juniors, learned of the awards as the spring semester was drawing to a close in late April.
Holcomb is majoring in field forensics within the Criminal Justice Department and is from Clay. After graduation he plans to become a West Virginia State Police officer. For now, he’ll be putting the scholarship to use by applying it toward his tuition for the fall semester. “For me, it was an honor to receive this scholarship; I have worked really hard in the program and this was a nice recognition,” he said. Holcomb says he enjoys his classes at GSC as he feels they are preparing him well for real-life situations in the criminal justice field.
Brandenburg is an Administration of Justice major at GSC and is from Berkeley Springs. In addition to his studies, he is also a member of the West Virginia National Guard.
Funding for the scholarship was provided by an anonymous donor. Each student will receive $1,000. The scholarships are administered by the GSC Foundation.
