A Taylorville High School senior has been named as a winner of one of the Illinois Sheriff’s Assocation Academic Scholarships. Zane Neville is one of 112 scholarship winners across the state of Illinois.
Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp says Neville is highly deserving of the award.
Part of the scholarship application process this year included writing an essay on how police can improve relations with the community. Kettelkamp says Neville’s essay, along with the many other essays his office received, bring great ideas on how to handle the issue.
Kettelkamp says seeing everything these kids are doing remind him how much promise the upcoming generation has.
