On Wednesday, June 17, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) Foundation awarded 12 children of active-duty LVMPD police and corrections officers with the Alyn Beck and Igor Soldo Memorial Scholarship at LVMPD Headquarters. Named in memory of Officers Alyn Beck and Igor Soldo, this scholarship is awarded to children of LVMPD law enforcement for the sixth consecutive year. This year, because of the generosity of Ron Coury and Don Tamburro who gave $50,000 and Switch who gave $10,000, the LVMPD Foundation is able to fund twelve $5,000 scholarships, each to college or vocational school-bound students. With their contribution this year, Mr. Coury and Mr. Tamburro have now given $300,000 to the Scholarship Fund.
Congratulations to the 2020 recipients!
