CSCC’s Lane Named 2019 IPSLEI Richard L. Resurreccion Public Safety Scholar

Friday, August 16, 2019
CSCC Sophomore Sadie Lane received the 2019 International Public Safety Leadership and Ethics Institute Richard L. Resurreccion Public Safety Scholarship for $1,000.

The purpose of the Richard L. Resurreccion Public Safety Scholarship Endowment is to provide scholarships to Phi Theta Kappa members who demonstrate potential for or involvement in public safety or service while enrolled in a regionally accredited associate degree public safety program.

“This scholarship has been a huge blessing,” stated Ms.
Lane. “It’s exciting to know that what you are doing makes a difference, and your effort was recognized.”

In order to be considered for the scholarship, students have to be a member of Phi Theta Kappa, have a minimum of a 3.5 G.P.A. on all coursework and at least 50 percent of coursework has to be in an associate degree program in public safety. 

“Sadie is so deserving of the honor that comes with winning this competitive scholarship," stated Dr. Victoria Bryan, director of the CSCC Honors Program. “She has exhibited leadership in and out of the classroom, and has done it alongside her commitment to learning. I'm incredibly proud to see her honored on a national level.”

Ms. Lane is actively involved on Cleveland State’s campus. In addition to being enrolled in the CSCC Honors program, Ms. Lane also serves as the social chair of the Honors Student Council and is a member of Phi Theta Kappa, the cross country and cheerleading teams. She volunteers at Turn the Page, a literary analysis group that helps victims of sex trafficking, as well as Moccasin Bend through the Next Door Program, assisting incarcerated people with creative writing.

“I was already an intrinsically motived individual, but coming to Cleveland State has opened a window of opportunities for me,” stated Ms. Lane. “I had a lot of the same interests as Dr. Bryan, and I really look up to her. She helped me to get more involved in things that I want to do. She has such a huge heart for others, and the honors program has really helped me grow during my time at CSCC.”

Ms. Lane will graduate from CSCC with her degree in criminal justice in May of 2020. She is the daughter of David and Amanda Lane of Ringgold.
