The Nevada Security Association, a chartered chapter of the Electronic Security Association (ESA), recently awarded first and second place scholarship prizes to two deserving high school students. The association’s scholarship program recognizes the academic and community achievements of the children of area police officers and fire fighters.
McKenna Murray, who is a senior at Advanced Technologies Academy, has been awarded $1,000 for 2nd place in the Nevada Security Association Youth Scholarship. McKenna will be choosing between Seattle University or the University of Utah for her future studies. McKenna has been super busy with her scholastic and extra-curricular activities which include National Secretary of Future Business Leaders of America, Executive VP of NV Future Business Leaders of America, President of College Prep Club, Member of National Honor Society, Student Math & Reading Tutor and Freshman Mentor and a Self-Development Program at church in which she volunteered over 400hrs. Many of these hours included helping to serve food to the homeless, volunteer work at Three Square Food Bank, tutoring ill children at Sunrise Children’s Hospital, among many others. She did this all while maintaining a 4.5 GPA! McKenna’s father is Firefighter Jeffrey Murray who works for the Las Vegas Fire Rescue Station 8.
