DWU’s Summerville awarded Fallen Heroes Scholarship

MITCHELL — Kayla Summerville, a sophomore at Dakota Wesleyan University, was recently awarded the South Dakota Corrections Association’s Fallen Heroes Scholarship.

Summerville, of Platte, is a human services and criminal justice double major with a specialization in chemical dependency. Her goal is to work with Child Protective Services after graduation, or a related field. She is the daughter of Alan and Sheila Summerville, of Platte.

The SDCA awards a $500 Fallen Heroes Scholarship each spring to a junior or senior college student who is a South Dakota resident and interested in South Dakota corrections or a related field. Summerville will receive her scholarship during the spring luncheon on April 10.

“The selection committee reviews the candidate’s community and school involvement, grade point average and the need for the award,” said Alan Swartz, a member of the scholarship/application committee.
