Memorial Scholarships

Scholarships have been awarded to family members of the police officers and fire fighters whose names are inscribed on the West Park Police and Firefighters Memorial. This is made possible due to the generosity of the community and the sponsors of the West Park Police and Firefighters Fund.  

Each year the Cleveland Police Patrolman’s Association and the Association of Cleveland Fire Fighters each select one scholarship recipient. It is fitting that a third scholarship is given to a Saint Joseph Academy student as a result of annually hosting and supporting the West Park Police and Firefighters Heroes Run. 

The Saint Joseph Academy student is selected with the approval of both the Cleveland Police Patrolman’s Association and the Association of Cleveland Fire Fighters. The West Park Police and Firefighters Memorial Fund were established in part to contribute to the educational needs of the children of our fallen West Park heroes.
