OCC student receives $1,000 scholarship

Troy High School graduate Carol "Katie" Zunker is among 21 top students receiving $1,000 college scholarships to encourage their pursuit of law enforcement/public safety careers by the professional public safety officers of the Law Enforcement Education Program (LEEP).

Zunker will be taking criminal justice classes at Oakland Community College. She plans to
transfer to Ferris State University to pursue a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.

She participated in the American Legion Student Trooper Program. In high school, she was on the softball team and Environmental Activist Club. She took a criminal law class in high school and received an Outstanding Performance Award in her forensics class.
“I have coached and taught Carol “Katie” Zunker in my Life Skills classroom over a time
period of approximately three years,” wrote MacKenzie Morris, teacher at Troy High School, in a recommendation letter. “Katie is driven by self-discipline and personal motivation to achieve her goals. She learns very quickly and always tries her hardest.”
In its ninth year, LEEP has awarded $102,000 in Dream Scholarships to students showing
interest in public service/law enforcement careers. The non-profit public safety group’s scholarship program is made possible by a growing list of national supporters.
