Two Webster Parish graduates have been recognized by Webster Parish Sheriff Gary Sexton.
Abigail Reynolds and Rodtravion Rogers have been named the recipient of an academic scholarship from the Louisiana Sheriff’s Scholarship Program for the 2015-2016 school year.
Reynolds resides in Dubberly and plans to attend Tulane and pursue Public Health as a field of study. Her parents are Dustin and Jennifer Reynolds.
Rogers resides in Minden and plans to attend Northwestern
University and pursue kinesiology as a field of study. His parents are Rodney and Teresa Rogers.
The Sheriff’s Scholarship is made possible by the Louisiana Sheriff’s Honorary Membership Program. 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 sheriff’s scholarship recipients.
The only limitations are the applicant be permanent residents of Louisiana; scholarships be utilized in higher education within the state; and students be enrolled as full-time, undergraduate students. Scholarships will be awarded in 64 parishes throughout the state.
“Academic awards by the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Scholarship Program to Louisiana students demonstrate what the Sheriff’s Honorary Membership Program is all about. This is one of our finest accomplishments,” Sexton said. “It invests in Louisiana’s future and gives something back to our community. This would not be possible without the kind and generous support of Webster Parish’s Honorary Members.”
