According to ONE Lexington Director Devine Carama, the opportunity is available, “for a rising Bryan Station High School senior of color, who is committed to attending a Kentucky college or university in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice or related field (police studies, social justice studies, pre-law, forensic science, emergency medical care, fire protection, homeland security and more).”
