To honor a man that has taught the community what it means to be a leader. Cpt. Lewis J Heslip lived a life we would all to aspire to. He was a perfect example of a kind, compassionate, physically fit, strong and loving man.
To honor Lewis we are starting a scholarship in his name. This scholarship will help a youth who does not have the resources prepare for and complete a 2- or 4- year degree as well as move forward into the Police academy if they choose. We plan to choose a young adult who portrays leadership qualities and is highly motivated but is lacking the financial support to do so. We plan to start mentoring this youth throughout their secondary education to help them stay focused on a higher education. When they complete the first phase of the mentoring progam we will provide them with a scholarship to attend a 2-or 4- year local college and continue mentoring them until they complete the program.
