The Blue Family Fund has just announced their 2018 scholarship recipient.

Blue Family Fund has decided to award their 2018 scholarship to Ms. Rebecca L. Buell, the daughter of an Austin, Texas Police officer. Buell participates in her high school and club volleyball teams, while volunteering at the Austin Police Operation Blue Santa and Coats for Kids program and recently led her volleyball team in a Hurricane Harvey cleanup program.

Her scholarship amounted to $500 to put towards furthering her education at the University of Texas at Tyler, where she will be studying Criminal Justice. Buell was also recruited to play volleyball for the University of Texas at Tyler.

After graduating at the University of Texas at Tyler with her undergraduate degree, Buell plans to continue her education by pursuing her masters. She hopes to follow in her father’s footsteps by becoming a law enforcement officer in her hometown of Austin, Texas.

The Blue Family Fund prides themselves in supporting the dependents of officers pursue a higher level of education.

The Blue Family fund raises money annually to create a scholarship fund for these dependents of officers that excel academically, like Ms. Rebecca L. Buell, and also have a passion for volunteering within their community.
