KINGMAN - Firefighters at the Northern Arizona Consolidated Fire District will have more than $2,000 to help pay for educational needs at Mohave Community College.

The district's relief association donated $2,200 to the Patti Lewis/Northern Arizona Consolidated Firefighters' Scholarship program, which is managed by the Mohave Community College Foundation.

Fire Chief Patrick Moore said the funds can be applied to fire science core classes and general education classes required by the degree program.

The donation was made possible through year-round fundraising efforts and a donation from the family of retired Capt. Laryel Tahbo, said Moore. The program does not use district tax money.

"We are very pleased that we can continue to provide opportunities for our employees' educational needs at the local community college while using non-tax-related funding to accomplish our goal," said Moore.

I think this would be an appropriate time to thank everyone who first sent money and their condolences after Laryel' Tahbo's death. Secondly thank all the countless people who helped put together such a beautiful service: From all the firefighters to all the law enforcement agencies and the members of St. Johns.

For the memorial the family was in the procession of fire trucks that led to St. Johns. I am still to this day stunned at the site of all the Firefighters, EMS and Police officers standing at attention in front of the church - it will be forever etched in our hearts (though I still wish I had a photo). Laryel loved the fire service and all the agencies involved with saving lives. Our family thought this was one small way to help continue on with the love that he shared with his fellow servants. Lastly thank you to all the friends we've made through Laryel's time with these agencies, some deep and lasting friendships have been made! Our daughters, and now grandsons look to many of these people as their Uncle's and Aunts I can not begin to tell you how much Laryel loved and honored you all - and so does the rest of his family!
