NEWS BRIEFS: Reminder we again now meet at the American Legion Post 84 at 100 East Street, Auburn. See Directions below.
We had a very good Scholarship Luncheon at the Jose Rizal Center. We presented seven scholarships this year, to an outstanding group of students from CSUS. We presented the following scholarships to the recipients: CSUS Criminal Justice Alumni-Dylan Fritz; Larry Stamm Memorial-Brittany Bartholomew; Michael Greene Memorial-Brady Ruth; Val Kobza- Brett Little; Bruce Verhoeven Memorial- Tom Tran; Three Professors – Susanna Voskanyan and the Sheriff James Cameron Memorial – Sam Thygeson. . Each was accompanied by very proud family and friends to witness the honor. Dr. Uwazie, Chairman of the CJ Department at CSUS spoke to the membership and families of the Criminal Justice program and CSUS and commended NCPOA’s continued presentations of financial awards to the students. Sheriff Jones was our host along with Undersheriff Eric Maness. We had 83 attending the presentation.
Our President Chris Champlin invited Jim Casey to our meeting who set up his incredible collection of Law Enforcement Badges and was so impressed with our organizations Scholarship program he filled out an application to join.
This month will be the eighth of the luncheons for the year and looking forward to the last lunch in Lincoln on June 20th, when we will elect the new board and officers for your association. We need members to step forward to serve as board members for the coming year. Not a great deal of time and effort, but a good way to support the NCPOA and its activities. If you have suggestions or questions about the requirements you may ask any of the board members or our Executive Director.
