An organization that assists families of fallen Utah law enforcement officers has awarded scholarships to four students.

The Utah 1033 Foundation presented the $2,500 scholarships at a Tuesday event hosted by Zions Bank that honored both the students, who are children of active law enforcement officers, and fallen officers.

Each scholarship awarded on Tuesday bears the name of one of the four officers killed in the line of duty since the foundation was created in 2011 — Ogden City Police Officer Jared Francom, Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Aaron Beesley, Draper City Police Sgt. Derek Johnson and Utah County Sheriff’s Sgt. Cory Wride.

This is the first year that the foundation — named for the radio code "10-33," which means an officer is in urgent need of help — has given the Leadership Award scholarships.

The recipients were Shaun Bartschi, of Hyrum, the son of Cache County Sheriff’s Sgt. Mikelshan Bartschi and a student at Mountain Crest High School; Kassidy Chamberlain, Grantsville, daughter of Grantsville Police Lt. Dan Chamberlain, Grantsville High school; Rebecca Collett, Dutch John, daughter of Daggett County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Christopher Collett, Manila High School; and Monica McCoy, Smithfield, daughter of Smithfield Police Chief Johnny W. McCoy, Sky View High School.

The foundation’s goals are to provide immediate financial assistance to the families of fallen officers and to help provide educational opportunities for the children of current officers.

The winners were selected from among 35 high school students who submitted essays on leadership, their school transcript and a school and community service form.
