DENVER, Colo. — The Denver police officer hit by a car nearly two years ago is being awarded with a special scholarship.

It’s all thanks to the Still Heroes Scholarship Fund, which will give Officer John Adsit a full ride to the University of Phoenix.

The fund, created by the International Association of Chiefs of Police, is designed to give traumatically injured officers the chance to reach their educational goals.

Adsit was hit and nearly killed while riding his bike trying to protect teens at a protest march in December 2014.
