Sheriff Awards $500 Scholarships
Wednesday, October 19, 2011
Sheriff Michael W. Neustrom is proud to announce the winners of the 2011 Louisiana Sheriff’s Scholarship Program. They are Tyler J. Bienvenue graduate of Lafayette High School and Leo Collins IV graduate of Acadiana High School. These students have been chosen to receive a $500 Scholarship from Sheriff Michael W. Neustrom and the Louisiana Sheriff’s Honorary Membership Program. There are no restrictions on the purposes for which the scholarship funds are spent. The scholarship is not a loan, and will be awarded as a gift to defray the rising cost of tuition and related expenses in higher education. The only limitations are that applicants be permanent residents of Louisiana; scholarships be utilized in higher education within the State; and students be enrolled as full-time, undergraduate students.
