Jeremy Pepin, a student at State Fair Community College in Sedalia has received the Ronny J. Coleman Fire and Emergency Services Leader of the Future Scholarship of $1,000 from the International Public Safety Leadership and Ethics Institute (IPSLEI) and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.
The Ronny J. Coleman Fire and Emergency Services Leader of the Future Scholarship program provides scholarships exclusively to Phi Theta Kappa members who demonstrate potential for excellence in the fire and emergency services fields while enrolled in a regionally accredited associate degree public safety program.
The Coleman Fire and Emergency Services Leader of the Future Scholarship was established by IPSLEI and Phi Theta Kappa in honor of Ronny J. Coleman, retired State Fire Marshall for the State of California. He is widely known as a certified Fire Chief and a Master Instructor in the California Fire Service Training and Education System.
The Coleman Scholarship Program is one of a growing number of scholarships available to Phi Theta Kappa members in career or technical programs. Learn more about the scholarship.
IPSLEI brings the concepts of leadership and ethics to the forefront of an individual’s career, rather than waiting until a person is promoted into a supervisory position. This program is based on the belief that one need not be a supervisor or manager to understand leadership principles and contribute to the leadership process. Learn more about IPSLEI.
