The Frederick County/Winchester Law Enforcement Foundation awarded two local students with scholarships, to assist with their first year in college. The new scholarship fund, for families of Winchester Police Department and Frederick County Sheriff’s Office employees, was one of two new scholarships the Foundation launched in June 2016.
Princess Sales, 18, is a recent James Wood High School graduate. She will be attending the University of St. Mary in Leavenworth, Kansas, where she will also join the track and field team. Princess is the daughter of Master Police Officer William Sales. She plans to major in criminal justice, with the goal of becoming a lawyer.
Kaitlyn Orndorff, 18, is a graduate of Shenandoah Valley Christian Academy, and will attend Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. She is the daughter of Winchester Police Sgt. Adam Orndorff. Kaitlyn also plans to major in criminal justice, with the goal of becoming a behavior analyst. Both students received a $1,000 scholarship to assist with books, tuition, and other school-related expenses.
The Frederick County/Winchester Law Enforcement Foundation, with financial support from Selma Medical Associates, Inc., has three scholarship opportunities for local students. Along with the employee scholarship, the Foundation will award scholarship money to a minority student from Winchester or Frederick County, who is pursuing a career in law enforcement. Graduates of the Timbrook Youth Reporting Center (TYRC) are also eligible for funds to support either a portion of their college expenses or a professional certificate program.
