Clinton County Sheriff Ralph D. Fizer Jr. and his staff on Tuesday presented the 2022 Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) scholarships to Elizabeth Mason of Clinton-Massie Schools and August Morgan from East Clinton Schools.
Each year the Sheriff’s Office presents a $1,000 D.A.R.E. scholarship to one student from each school district that participates in the Drug Abuse Resistance Education program sponsored by the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office.
The money for these scholarships is generated from the arrest and conviction of local drug dealers.
“We feel it is important to assist our youth in reaching their educational goals. Using funds forfeited as a result of a destructive lifestyle and turning them into a positive for these deserving students is a great investment in their future,” Fizer said.
Mason will be attending Hocking College, majoring in Environmental Science.
Morgan will be attending Muskingum University, majoring in Exercise Science.
The Clinton County Sheriff’s Office wishes both Elizabeth and August great success in achieving their educational goals.
