"Amy Kuritar Lohrmann Memorial Endowed Scholarship "
“Amy Kuritar Lohrmann graduated from UCF in 1994 with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. She was an exceptional student who was an active member of Lambda Alpha Epsilon. After graduating from UCF, Amy worked for the Seminole County Probation Office for three years as a probation officer. She was respected and liked by her colleagues and was considered an integral part of the office. In 2001, Amy was tragically killed by her husband in a domestic violence incident that ended in a murder-suicide. Her parents, Robert and Renee Kuritar, established this scholarship in her memory in 2002. This scholarship is an opportunity to create more awareness for domestic violence prevention through law enforcement support and to assist criminal justice students interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement.
