Doyon Foundation scholar Audrey George has a bright future in law enforcement. She was one of 15 students who graduated
from the University of Alaska Fairbanks Community and Technical College Law Enforcement Academy in November 2011.
Originally from Nulato, Audrey is the daughter of Joyce George and the late Victor George, Jr. She is the granddaughter
of the late Fred Stickman, Jr. and the late Christine Demoski, and Victor George, Sr. and the late Gertrude George.
Doyon Foundation scholarship recipient Audrey George graduated from the University of Alaska Fairbanks
Community and Technical College Law Enforcement Academy in mid-November. Pictured with George (center) at
the graduation ceremony are Scott Jones, Doyon Universal Services director of training and background
investigation (left), and Tonya Garnett, Doyon Foundation scholarship program manager (right).
Audrey decided to attend the academy because “I wanted to work for Doyon Security either on the pipeline or on the North Slope.”
She got her wish. Upon her successful completion of the academy, Audrey was offered a position as a Doyon Universal Security officer
at the ConocoPhillips Kuparuk site, where she is currently working.
The 13-week academy is offered twice a year and provides students with basic police training for Interior and rural municipalities
in preparation for the Alaska Police Standards Certification. Participants who successfully complete the program will be eligible
for employment with any of the approximately 21 state enforcement agencies or 43 municipal police departments within Alaska.
Audrey encourages students who are interested in attending the academy to “stay focused, study hard and don’t ever give up.”
Audrey was the Doyon Foundation’s fall 2011 Law Enforcement Academy scholarship recipient. The funds are provided by the Alyeska
Pipeline Service Company, Alaska Native Program. A $7,500 scholarship will be available for the spring 2012 Law Enforcement Academy.
