Jamye Wisecup Scholarship
ABOUT JAMYE WISECUP
Jamye was the heart and soul of emergency management in her community and made an impact on many people’s lives. In addition to her work with emergency management at Clallam County Sheriff’s Office, Jamye served on numerous local non-profit boards and was known as very active in helping spread awareness and involvement in emergency management and disaster preparedness. Her dedication to promote emergency preparedness and her genuine unconditional caring for everyone made her an exceptional woman.
Her efforts to provide her community and others with the knowledge, skills, and abilities in areas of all-hazards emergency management resulted in seven (7) Community and Technical Colleges around the state offering the Homeland Security Emergency Management (HSEM) Certificate and Associate’s Degree Program through the Collaborating College model. She also participated in the Bachelor of Applied Science – HSEM workgroup, one of the first HSEM Bachelor Degree Programs in Washington. In 2014, The Center of Excellence – Homeland Security
Emergency Management welcomed Jayme Wisecup to its Advisory Board. As a Board member, Jamye supported and assisted in strengthening the Center’s presence, both online and in person.
The focus of the Jamye Wisecup Fund will be Emergency Management/Disaster Preparedness. It will provide scholarships to attend the Homeland Security Emergency Management (HSEM) Certificate or Associates Degree Program, which is offered at Peninsula College, along with seven (7) other “Collaborating Colleges” across the state. Scholarships would only be for those taking the Certificate or Associate’s Degree at Peninsula College. Program support could be utilized for the HSEM Program, which is managed centrally at Pierce College in Lakewood for all seven of the HSEM Programs. There are also colleges continuing to join the Program Collaboration because this Degree is offered through online access to Canvas through Washington Community and Technical Colleges.
We want to establish a Scholarship/Program Endowment Fund with a minimum of $30,000, which will provide lasting support.
When you donate to The Jamye Wisecup Scholarship Fund, you’re supporting students in our All-Hazards career pathway programs that will help them thrive in their communities.
