Attending Law Enforcement Academy

Doyon Foundation student Cody Stanley recently received a $7,000 Doyon Foundation scholarship to attend the Law Enforcement Academy at the University of Alaska Fairbanks' Tanana Valley Campus. The goal of the law enforcement scholarship program is to increase Alaska Native
hire on the trans-Alaska oil pipeline.

Stanley, who is originally from Wasilla, Alaska, said the scholarship is paying for his tuition, as well as room, board, parking and other expenses.

"The support has been amazing," he said. "It's giving people a chance to do something that they otherwise wouldn't do."

Through the intensive, 13-week program, law enforcement students receive basic police training, which positions them for work with state or municipal agencies, as well as private security companies. After graduating later this fall, Stanley said he hopes to work for Doyon Security.

In addition to his studies, Stanley said he enjoys playing music, snowboarding and skateboarding.

"Success is living life and being happy. I'd say if you have acquired those two things, you are a successful person," said Stanley, who is the son of Brian and Ruthie Stanley, and the grandson of Jack and Mae Stanley, and Eugene and Mable Blatchford.
