Congratulation to our 2 K.O.P. Scholarship Essay Contest Winners: Taylor Wichtendahl and Kelsey Donahue!


K.O.P. or “Kids of Police” Montella Scholarship Program is just one way I can give back to the Police Officer Community I once served with.
— Brent Montella

Behind the K.O.P. Scholarship...

I was a Police Officer for 15 years before I was injured and medically retired, so my heart is closely tied to the community and their families.  Growing up it seemed I was always behind the learning curve fighting to persevere through educational challenges. I worked hard in school to get grants, loans and to hold jobs to receive my Bachelors Degree.  With hard work, discipline and perseverance I reached my educational goals and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree when others said I couldn’t. From that journey I discovered a love for motivating others.

Today, my past meets the present struggles and obstacles of our police community as they are under the microscope of negative publicity.  I want to take a negative moment in that community and bring a positive with giving back to our public service members and their families.  With this in mind, I created the K.O.P. Scholarship.  Each year I want to give the kids of active serving police officers the opportunity to earn $500 toward their college education.  To participate and earn a chance to win the $500 K.O.P.

It may be your faith,  it may be someone you have never met.  I would like an essay written of someone who has influenced and inspired you to be a better you!

You’ve been a good Realtor for us. You listened to what we wanted and did not want and found the perfect home! We are very happy you took the time to set up multiple house showings because we probably would have skipped over that one!
— Zillow Review, Clients Mike and Ivey
Our family has moved several times and I can honestly say that Brent has been our best Realtor by far. He made us feel very important and treated us not only like important clients but also like friends. He did so much for us in terms of making our home a priority and was very helpful in giving us suggestions and ideas on how to best sell our home. He was always quick to respond to any requests or questions we had and he put our minds at ease about the whole process. He was very successful in selling our home quickly and being there with us every step of the way.

He was also able to show us the house within 10 minutes of first talking to him. He also made sure we got everything we wanted the seller to do. We recommend Brent, he gets the job done!
