Wylie Police Association Scholarship
The Wylie Police Association, founded in 2012, is a nonprofit organization whose resolution is to foster a positive relationship between its members and the community they serve. In 2013, the Wylie P.O.L.I.C.E. Club was established and is sponsored by the Wylie Police Department's School Resource Officers. This club is an organization at the high school level available to Wylie ISD students in ninth through 12th grade. These students give up countless hours to work community events and fundraisers throughout the school year in an effort to make our community better. The Wylie Police Association has established a scholarship to recognize a Wylie P.O.L.I.C.E. Club member who has gone above and beyond in their efforts to help other people. The Wylie ISD senior selected to receive this award has shown to be a shining example of character, leadership, intelligence, and hard work.
