Daytona Beach, FL-A scholarship has been established at ERAU to honor the graduate killed in the line of duty earlier this year.
The scholarship is named for Ashley Guindon, a former US Marine, and 2011 ERAU graduate in Daytona Beach. Guindon was shot to death responding to call on her first day as a police officer in Prince William County, Maryland. Two other officers were wounded at that scene on February 27, 2016.
Chris Bonner, an ERAU associate professor, knew Guindon well as a student and says, if she had lived, she would have been a role model for her fellow law enforcement officers and especially for young women in the career.
The scholarship will be awarded to students who choose either Homeland Security or Global Conflict Studies as a career path.
