Academy of Crisis Intervention Scholarship Fund

2018 Online Course Scholarship Recipients

Keith Overby

Keith is from Michigan and is retired Law Enforcement (39 years) and a Volunteer Chaplain at Flint Michigan.  One of his goals with obtaining this training is to "show that we can adapt, be happy, and have that same peace and serenity that gives me my drive to learn while contributing back to those that have it worse than me."

One of his letters of recommendation states "[Keith] volunteers his time to Elite EMS as our Crisis Intervention Coordinator.  He has been very proactive in educating staff, providing in-services to both field and office personnel and leads critical incident stress debriefings for employees who have been involved in troubling crisis or tragic situations and experiences on the job."

Alicia Crichlow Regis

Alicia is from Trinidad and Tobago and is a school social worker who often responds to critical incidents in schools throughout the area.  She is a volunteer with the Trinidad and Tobago Critical Incident Support Team.  She applied for an online course scholarship because "suicide is a huge but ignored part of our culture in Trinidad and Tobago...Thus any intervention is done on a reactive level."  She hopes that this scholarship will provide her with more exposure to training and provide her with more skills and techniques in crisis interventions. 

In her letters of recommendation, they state "Given her passionate willingness to contribute to social health, there is absolutely no reservation in recommending her for this (scholarship)...she is an ambitious, self motivated, resilient individual."

"[Alicia] continues to seek out opportunities for increased professional development as she gives herself selflessly to the empowerment of individuals who have experienced varying levels of trauma in her country...Alicia has proven to be caring, committed, and naturally talented in working with vulnerable individuals."
