Peter Shoemaker of Alton was surprised with a $2,500 Resiliency Scholarship to Western Governors University. 

The scholarship is designed to assist students with the unforeseen financial struggles presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and allow them to continue their course of study.

Shoemaker, a shift assistant and operations lead for Amazon, is pursuing a bachelor of science in cybersecurity and information assurance from WGU. He was virtually presented with the scholarship on Dec. 4 by WGU Strategic Partnerships Manager Patrick Devanney.
