Erie Community College Criminal Justice students Henry Urbanczyk (pictured

security organization ASIS International at its local chapter’s 43rd
annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Luncheon, held at Salvatore’s Italian
Gardens on December 14.
International—a global community of security practitioners who represent
virtually every industry in the public and private sectors, and organizations
of all sizes—annually award scholarships to ASIS members and full or part-time
students who are enrolled in an accredited two- or four-year college or
university. Applicants need to have completed at least one year of study in a
Public or Private Security, Criminal Justice, Legal Studies, or Pre-Law
program; and plan to seek a career in security or law enforcement. Both
Urbanczyk and Pordan met these requirements, with the former also boasting
credentials as president of SUNY Erie’s Criminal Justice Club at South Campus,
as well as completion of a coveted student internship within the Erie County
District Attorney’s Office.
