The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) is excited to announce its commitment to the education of the youth of Douglas County. Sheriff David A. Weaver has established a scholarship fund and will award ten scholarships in 2012, each valued at $750.
The DCSO considers this an investment in the future and believes it is helping to provide deserving students with an opportunity to make a positive contribution to society. The scholarships are funded through money raised at the 2010 Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Shoot-Out at Sanctuary Golf Tournament fundraiser and $250 of it is a portion of the money raised in the 2011 Charity Shoot-Out, put on by members of the DCSO.
The scholarship program is broken down into three separate categories:
