Greipp Scholarship Recipients Named

​Six exceptional security industry professionals were selected to receive full-tuition scholarships offered through a partnership between the ASIS Foundation and the University of Phoenix.

The Jeff Greipp Secure Your Future Scholarship winners are William Crews, CPP; Luis Escamilla; Landon Johnson; Kelly Maddox; Clifford Mix; and Emily Sullivan, PSP. They will now be able to pursue an undergraduate or master’s degree program through the College of Security and Criminal Justice at the University of Phoenix.

Recipients may choose to pursue their degree at an on-ground campus or online. When applicable, persons holding an ASIS certification will receive college credit for this accomplishment.

Professionals from a cross-section of the security industry worldwide applied for this year’s scholarships. To be considered, applicants needed to meet all the admission requirements for the university; ASIS International membership was not a consideration. Once they begin their course work, the winners must maintain good standing throughout the term of their scholarship.

A committee comprised of members from the ASIS Foundation Board of Trustees, its Research Council, the ASIS Board of Directors, and the Professional Certification Board reviewed all applications and selected the recipients.

The scholarships honor the contributions and memory of ASIS member Jeffrey Greipp, JD. During three years of collaborative research and inquiry, Greipp was instrumental in creating an Enterprise Security Competency Model and presented at ASIS seminars on aligning academic curricula with industry needs.

Officials with whom he collaborated at both the University of Phoenix and the Foundation agree that Greipp’s leadership and vision will live on through this scholarship program.
