Natchitoches Parish Sheriff Stuart Wright announced that Chancellor Davis of Natchitoches Parish has been named the recipient of an academic scholarship from the Louisiana Sheriff’s Scholarship Program for the 2019-2020 school year.
He resides in Natchitoches and plans to attend Louisiana
Tech University and pursue Civil Engineering as a field of study. His mother is Nola McGuire.
The Sheriff’s Scholarship is made possible by the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Honorary Membership Program (LSHMP). Louisiana Sheriff’s provide scholarships to graduating high school students from each parish where the Sheriff is an affiliate of the Program.
Qualities such as academic achievement, leadership, and character are considered in making selections of Sheriffs’ scholarship recipients. The only limitations are that applicants be permanent residents of Louisiana; scholarships be utilized in higher education within the State; and students must be enrolled as full-time, undergraduate students.
Scholarships are awarded in sixty-four parishes throughout the state.
“Nicholas Wiggins and Emily Maggio were named as alternates and received an academic scholarship from the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office,” according to the Sheriff.
In closing Sheriff Wright said, “Academic awards by the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Scholarship Program to Louisiana students demonstrate what the LSHMP is all about. This is one of our finest accomplishments. It invests in Louisiana’s future and gives something back to our community. This would not be possible without the kind and generous support of Natchitoches Parish’s Honorary Members. ”
