Seniors can apply for Sheriff’s scholarship
Sheriff Greg Champagne will award a scholarship providing assistance to a worthy St. Charles Parish student in furthering their education and training with resources made available throught the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Honorary Membership Program. It will be awarded to a graduating high school student.
“This scholarship program is a meaningful expression of the program’s respect for education. It demonstrates our confidence in Louisiana’s youth...our future leaders,” said Champagne, who is also the program chair.
