The Frank Whitton Scholarship Fund

By July 12, 2021 No Comments

The Carlsbad Fire Department Foundation is proud to announce the Frank Whitton Scholarship.

Frank Whitton epitomizes the idea of public service. A retired Marine and Vietnam veteran, Whitton has served the City of Carlsbad since moving to the city in 1996. On a larger scale, Frank has been devoted to community and country for his entire adult life. Frank founded the Carlsbad Fire Department Foundation in 2015, which has raised almost $150,000.

Every year the Foundation provides college scholarships awarded to the dependents of Carlsbad Fire Department personnel. This was a focus that was near and dear to Frank’s heart and will continue to be a significant part of the Foundation’s initiatives in his honor.
