A new scholarship has been established in the memory of Captain Matt Trott. The Captain Matt Trott Scholarship is open to second-year fire science majors.

The scholarship recipient will receive a total of $1,000 split evenly between the fall and spring semesters. The student must have a GPA of 3.0, be a Wyoming resident, be enrolled in six credit hours each semester, submit an essay, and have completed the Casper College online application to qualify.

“Matt was a genuine, true, and selfless public servant. He will always be remembered for his dedicated commitment, courage, tactical brilliance, perseverance, and his compelling sense of humor,” said his widow, Nicole Trott. “Matt gave his life in the line of duty to firefighter-related cancer. This endowment is to honor Matt’s commitment to our community and future first responders,” she added.
