Captain Ingles Awarded Prestigious Scholarship By NFPA

Congratulations to our own Captain Penelope (Penny) Ingles who was recently awarded the prestigious George D. Miller Scholarship by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The Scholarship was established in honor of the former NFPA president and CEO and is awarded to students in fire service or public administration programs.

Penny is pursuing her Bachelor of Science Degree in Fire Science and Technology and is in her final year at Columbia Southern University. Her advisors observed that “Ingles is a highly motivated student and is dedicated and determined to achieve her goals.”

This one time scholarship of $5,000 will go a long way toward helping her complete her degree this year!

It has been quite an eventful year for Penny as she was recently promoted to Captain this past April! Her long-term goal career goal is to achieve the rank of Battalion Chief. There is no doubt she will get there one day – with degree in hand!

Great job Captain Penny Ingles! You can read the NFPA Press Release for more on the award and Penny.
