The Dave Cameron Memorial Scholarship

The Dave Cameron Memorial Scholarship was originally established in 2001 by the Wyoming Highlanders to assist Jackson Hole youth to realize their goal of achieving an education in criminal justice or law enforcement. The initial purpose was to provide financial aid to one student enrolling in a 4 year accredited institution or the Wyoming Police Academy . At the time, graduating seniors from Jackson Hole High School or Western Wyoming High School were eligible to apply. None of the recipients went on to complete these career paths.

At the present time our focus has changed a bit, and we now seek to award Scholarship money to active Jackson Police Officers or Teton County Sheriff's Deputies who apply through the Scholarship Committee to assist them with continuing education expenses. These Scholarships are offered when funds are available. We are awarding two $500.00 Scholarships at the Opening Ceremonies of the 2010 Jackson Hole Scottish Festival.

The initial grant for 2004 was $600.00, and was awarded to Jessica Salvi.
In 2005 was increased to $1,000.00, made possible in part by Old Bill's Fun Run and the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole .
In 2008 we awarded two $500.00 grants to active Jackson Police Officers Trevor Aitken and Katherine McClure to assit them in continuing education.
