Andrea Barth of Rapid City, a WDT student in the Law Enforcement program, has received the $200 Ryan Prince Memorial Scholarship.
Family and friends of Ryan Prince established an annual memorial scholarship for WDT’s full-time, first-year Law Enforcement students who maintain a 2.0 GPA or higher. This award is for students who demonstrate financial need and maintain good standing at WDT. These scholarship funds are to assist with expenses associated with the purchase of the uniform required for WDT’s Law Enforcement students.
