NEW ORLEANS - 05-24-2017

Orleans Parish Sheriff Marlin N. Gusman announced that Mia Felton, 18, has been awarded an academic scholarship from the Louisiana Sheriffs' Scholarship Program for the 2016-2017 school year. She is the daughter of OPSO Administrative Assistant Tanya Ross.

Mia, who recently graduated from St. Mary's Academy, plans to attend Southeastern University in Hammond to pursue a science degree. Her career goal is to become a neonatal nurse. Once enrolled, she will receive the $500 scholarship which can be used to purchase books and supplies or to defray other educational expenses.

Sheriff Gusman said, "I'm pleased that that Louisiana Sheriffs' Scholarship Program makes it possible for me to not only contribute to Mia's education today, but to make an investment into her promising future."

As the winner in Orleans Parish, Mia joins scholarship winners from other parishes where the local sheriff is an affiliate of the program. Applicants must be permanent residents of Louisiana, and the scholarship must be used in higher education within the state. Qualities such as academic achievement, leadership and character are considered in the selection of scholarship recipients.
