FAMA Awards 2017 Phillip L. Turner Scholarship to Brett Seggerman

The Fire Apparatus Manufacturers’ Association (FAMA) awarded its 2017 Phillip L. Turner Fire Protection Scholarship to Oklahoma State University student Brett Seggerman. Seggerman was selected to receive the $5,000 scholarship in recognition of his outstanding achievements and dedication to the protection of life-safety.

Brett’s life focus is on helping others. During high school Brett accumulated over 500 hours of community service hours, plus many more during college.

He also has served as the College of Engineering, Architecture, and Technology Student Council Representative for both SAFI and SFPE. Recently, Brett was elected Treasurer of the SFPE; in this role he will manage the organization’s finances for their events.

He plans to pass the FE (Fundamentals of Engineering) exam soon and graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Fire Protection & Safety Engineering Technology in May 2018. Brett looks forward to a career in Fire Protection Engineering and is currently contemplating pursuing a Master’s degree.

During the application process, FAMA received five letters of recommendation on Brett’s behalf. His professors consistently spoke very highly of Brett’s academic record, leadership and professionalism, and community involvement.
