Arthur Petersen, Dennis E. Dearing Jr. and Norval Jones Scholarships

Every year, three graduating seniors who live in or attend high school in Auburn Hills receive a $1,000 scholarship. These scholarships honor the memories of three outstanding members of our department, Chief Arthur Petersen, Firefighter Dennis E. Dearing Jr. and Captain Norval Jones.

To be eligible, a graduating senior must be planning to attend a university, community college or vocational school in the upcoming academic year. The scholarship committee reviews all applications and selects three students. Helping Hands board members present the scholarships to the students in front of city council.
