First Jim Glasmann Scholarship awarded

Prize named in honor of longtime Pomona school resource officer

Posted

Merall “Mimi” Sawaked was awarded the first Jim Glasmann Scholarship, named for the former Pomona High School school resource officer who died shortly after he retired last year.

The Northey Foundation started the scholarship fund to honor Glasmann and his nearly 40 years of service to the students and Arvada community. The $2,000 scholarship is available only to Pomona seniors.

To qualify for the scholarship, Sawaked had to maintain a certain grade-point average and complete community service hours.

“I applied because I’m in the criminal justice program at Warren Tech, and Officer Glasmann was close to me and my family,” Sawaked said. “Both of my sisters got their driver’s licenses with him. He was just a huge part of our community.”

The Northey Foundation was started to honor and preserve the memory of W. Michael Northey, an Arvada police office who was killed in the line of duty. The foundation provides financial assistance to officer and their families in times of crisis, and also provides scholarship to graduates of Arvada high schools.

A statement from the Northey Foundation Board of Directors states, “The Michael Northey Foundation is honored to announce Mimi Sawaked as the first recipient of the Jim Glasmann Memorial Scholarship. Her student leadership, criminal justice studies, and community involvement would make Officer Glasmann very proud. Congratulations again Mimi and good luck with all your future endeavors.”
