On May 15, 2019 our members presented Deviante Armstead with our 2019 scholarship. Deviante has aspirations of joining the FBI and BadgeWives of Tampa Bay Inc. is so very proud to offer some assistance on his journey. We wish Deviante the best in his education and his career.

The Mission of BadgeWives of Tampa Bay Inc. is to promote positive law enforcement relationships within the community, to seek community support for law enforcement, provide support for law enforcement families in need, and to encourage stronger relationships within families. This scholarship is designed to recognize students who demonstrate a similar passion for public service, and who demonstrate leadership, financial need and a desire to pursue a career in law enforcement or related fields.

We received an entry that told a story of determination and a desire to make a difference in his community that really resonated with us. Despite his circumstances and history, he found a passion in football and used it to help him succeed. This young man clearly desires to make a difference in his community through a career in criminal justice.

BadgeWives is excited to be offering a 2020 scholarship as well. Stay tuned for details!
