Shelby Mellard, Derby, KS, Eric Fisher Academy

After earning a degree in criminal justice, Shelby served as a Wichita Police Department officer, where she often saw the “ugly” side of life, including acts of domestic violence. In her application video, Shelby shares how working with victims of domestic violence helped her see how she could merge her passion for helping and beautifying lives. “This scholarship is making it financially possible for me to put down my badge and pursue my dream of a career in esthetics,” says Shelby.
