Two CCSD grads nab Security Association scholarships

Two recent Clark County School District graduates received $2,500 in scholarships from the Nevada Security Association.

The association, which is a chapter of the national Electronic Security Association, awards scholarships in recognition of the academic and community achievements of the children of Las Vegas Valley police officers and firefighters.

Mekell Peterson, a Foothill High School graduate, received the first-place scholarship of $1,500. Peterson plans to attend Brigham Young University this fall. Her father is Alton Peterson, a firefighter-engineer with the Clark County Fire Department.

Michael Kelso, a Boulder City High School graduate, received the second-place scholarship of $1,000. Kelso plans to study engineering at the Colorado School of Mines. His father is Patrick Kelso, an officer with Metro Police.
