Students in the Frenship High School Law Enforcement program were honored to attend the celebration of a new endowment of the South Plains College Law Enforcement Scholarship designed to recognize FHS students who will attend the Law Enforcement Technology Program at SPC.
The $10,000 donation to the South Plains College Foundation was generously given by Ms. Betty Caddell and family in honor of her husband and longtime Hockley County Sherriff Donald Caddell.
FHS Law Enforcement teachers Javad Deshone and Craig Allen along with current FHS students joined Caddell, her family, SPC President Dr. Robin Satterwhite, FISD Superintendent Dr. Michelle McCord, and other members from SPC and FISD for a public presentation Friday.
The scholarship provides a new opportunity for FHS Law Enforcement students to further enhance the partnership between these programs.
“There’s a unique relationship between South Plains College and Frenship so we are really blessed,” said Julie Gerstenberger, SPC Director of Development and Alumni Relations. “As long as we exist as an institution and as long as our Foundation exists, we will be able to provide a scholarship to honor the memory of Sherriff Caddell.”
“I’m glad to be a part of this generous donation to our Law Enforcement Department from the Caddell family,” said Deshone.
