Florida Sheriffs Association Awards Scholarships to Students

The Florida Sheriffs Association, following in its annual tradition, has awarded scholarships to hardworking students studying for a career in law enforcement, corrections or another criminal justice field. These students look to follow in the footsteps of their parents, as they are also the sons and daughters of employees working full-time for a Florida Sheriff’s Office. To be considered for the scholarship, students submitted a five-page application and an essay on how their parent motivated them to choose law enforcement. The applications and essays were reviewed by a committee of representatives from the Florida Sheriffs Association whose members selected the ten recipients. This year, the Florida Sheriff’s Office selected 10 recipients. Of those individuals, one is from Santa Rosa County.
