Olney Chamber Establishes Scholarship Fund in Officer Noah Leotta’s Name
The Olney Chamber of Commerce has established a scholarship fund to commemorate the life and passion of Montgomery County police officer Noah Leotta.
The Chamber is asking local businesses and residents to help contribute to the fund, which will be awarded to local high school students committed to pursuing a career in law enforcement or public safety.
According to the scholarship’s GoFundMe page, over $3,400 has been raised to date.
Leotta was struck by a vehicle last December while working as a member of the police department’s Holiday Alcohol Task Force. He died a week later from his injuries.
The “Officer Noah Leotta Act Responsibly Scholarship,” in the amount of $1,000, will be awarded to local high school students committed to pursuing public safety and/or law enforcement careers. Applicants will be evaluated on leadership, civic and volunteer activities, as well as academic performance. Strong consideration will be given to essays demonstrating their belief in, and commitment to, the ideals embodied by Officer Leotta.
