The OFPD scholarships are given in honor of a member of the District that has shown exemplary service to the people of the community. This year, Bert Nease is being honored.

He dedicated his life to serving the people of our District in many capacities. He started his career in 1969 and served as a volunteer firefighter for 43 years. Nease worked for five different Fire Chiefs during his time at the Oswego Fire Protection District.

Nease exemplified what it means to be a firefighter. He truly dedicated his life to his community and the Fire District. 

The OFPD scholarships are given in honor of a member of the Fire Protection District that has shown exemplary service to the people of the communities the district serves.
