Vicki Bourg Memorial Scholarship
Officer Vicki Bourg was the Lincoln North Star resource officer from the schools inception in 2002 until her death in January of 2011. Vicki was a decorated Lincoln Police Officer who loved her job, the outdoors, and most importantly, the students at Lincoln North Star High School. Officer Bourg was a tireless advocate for the students at North Star and held a unique gift in her ability to build relationships with students who needed a caring adult. The young people she worked with always understood that Vicki was primarily a person who sincerely cared, she just happened to be a Lincoln police officer. As a testament to Vicki's devotion to the young people of North Star High School, her husband Jesse Roberts and her parents Dale and Linda Bourg have created a scholarship in her name. The applicants will not be restricted to any particular institute of higher education. Students should be able to articulate how the use of the scholarship will be used to further their career goals.
