FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

RE:  IMSA Middle Atlantic Section 2017 Scholarships

The Middle Atlantic Section of IMSA is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2017 Middle Atlantic Section IMSA Scholarships for the 2017-2018 school year.  The recipients are Emma Cox, of Staunton, Virginia; Nicholas Brown Kiser of Mount Solon, Virginia; Whitney Kiser of Mount Solon, Virginia; and Stephen R. Lewis of Suffolk, Virginia.

IMSA is the leading resource for endorsement of Public Safety through Certification and Education. To this end, the Middle Atlantic Section IMSA is proud to offer the opportunity for qualified applicants to compete for financial resources to assist them in pursuit of higher education in the field of Public Safety.

IMSA offers educational and certification programs in Traffic Signals, Signs and Markings, Work Zone Traffic Control, Municipal and Interior Fire Alarm systems, Public Safety Dispatcher and Flagging.  To assist the governmental agencies in lowering the likelihood of unnecessary legal actions and to increase the quality of public safety personnel, it is the deep conviction of IMSA that a certification program is warranted in each area of public safety operations.

The IMSA Certification Programs are primarily concerned with the evaluation of expertise.  However, IMSA realizes that not all agencies have access to standardized training materials and therefore make available Certification Review Programs for its level examinations.  These Review Programs are not intended to teach an individual all that he/she needs to know in order to pass a particular examination.  They are intended to present the fundamentals of particular areas and overview of subjects that participants should already be familiar with based on national standards and regulations.

Congratulations again on receiving these awards and good luck with your upcoming studies!
