Sheriff Scholarship Recipients Announced

June 17, 2020

Sheriff Jayson Richardson
DeSoto Parish Sheriff's Office

Sheriff Richardson would like to announce the recipients of the annual Louisiana Sheriff's academic scholarship program for the 2019-2020 school year.  The Sheriffs' Scholarship is made possible by the Louisiana Sheriffs' Honorary Membership Program (LSHMP).  Louisiana Sheriffs provide scholarships to graduating high school students from each parish where the Sheriff is an affiliate of the program.  Qualities such as academic achievement , leadership, and character are considered in making selections of Sheriffs' scholarship recipients.  The only limitations are that applicants be permanent residents of Louisiana, scholarships be utilized in higher education within the State, and students be enrolled as full-time undergraduate students.  These scholarships are awarded in sixty-four parishes throughout the state. 

Sheriff Richardson would like to acknowledge and congratulate this years selected recipients: 
Bailey McConathy of Logansport High School
Schmiah Turner of Evangel Christian Academy
Keirston White of Mansfield High School

Academic awards by the Louisiana Sheriffs' Scholarship Program to Louisiana students demonstrate what the LSHMP is all about.  This is one of our finest accomplishments which is to invest in Louisiana's future and give something back to our communities.  This would not be possible without the kind and generous support of DeSoto Parish's Honorary Members.

Aaliyah Ford of Mansfield High School and Tanna Wheless of Logansport High School were named as alternates in the event that any recipient is unable to take advantage of the scholarship award.  We congratulate all five students on their academic accomplishments!
