Stillwater Fire intern receives scholarship from International Association of Fire Chiefs

(STILLWATER, OKLAHOMA / AUGUST 25, 2016) – The City of Stillwater recognizes fire department intern Ashley Evans, who recently received a scholarship from the International Association of Fire Chiefs.

Evans is a senior studying fire protection and safety engineering technology at Oklahoma State University. She has interned with the Stillwater Fire Department since October 2014.

While at OSU, Evans has been involved in the Society of Fire Protection Engineers, where she served as president of the OSU Chapter, and the American Society of Safety Engineers, where she served as the vice president of the OSU Chapter.
