Z-Man Scholarship Program

January 26, 2009 00:00

  

BUREAU TO ROLL OUT Z-MAN SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM/THANK CORPORATE PARTNERS

On the anniversary of the death of Officer Mark “Z-Man” Zylawy, members of the Portland Police Bureau, Chief Rosanne Sizer, Commissioner Dan Saltzman, community members and corporate partners will celebrate the formal announcement of the Z-Man Scholarship Program. The reception will be at 1 p.m. on the 14th floor of the Justice Center.

Officer Zylawy was tragically killed in a traffic collision on January 27, 2008. Since that time, Bureau members have worked closely with local corporate donors to establish the scholarship. The scholarship program assists inner city youth in attending La Salle Catholic College Preparatory and de la Salle North Catholic High School. At the reception, this year’s three scholarship recipients will be in attendance and the first public viewing of the Z-Man Scholarship Program video will be shown.

As a result of the businesses and community members who stepped forward, the Police Bureau has obtained remarkable support not only with the scholarship program, but with its recruitment and hiring efforts. Chief Sizer will publicly thank the members of the Software Association of Oregon as well as the members of the Oregon National Guard. The Bureau would like to recognize the outstanding support that it has received as well as provide information on how other corporations or organizations can partner with the Police Bureau to positively impact the Bureau in its quest to hire and train new officers. In attendance will be numerous representatives from local businesses who have expressed an interest in how they can partner with the Bureau to help build a safe community.

All media are invited.
