JEFFERSON COUNTY SHERIFF’S FOUNDATION  presented their first Scholarship Award to 2011 Chimacum High School graduate, DANI KAMINSKI-SOUTHARD.  The $1,000 Scholarship was the first given out since the inception of the Sheriff’s Foundation in 2007.

DANI will enter Washington State University for the Fall 2011 semester.  Her career path will be focused on Criminal Justice.  Influenced by her father, JOHN SOUTHARD, a patrolman with the Sequim Police Department, DANI has spent many hours on ride-alongs with the Sequim Police.

Jefferson County Sheriff’s Foundation was organized to promote community welfare through support of public safety and volunteer programs.

The Foundation is an independent, non-profit, charitable organization that promotes and supports community policing, crime prevention and education initiatives developed by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.  Financial support from individuals and organizations in our community is vital for the success of the Foundation’s programs.

A key fundraiser for the Foundation is a planned golf tournament scheduled for Saturday, August 27, 2011 at Discovery Bay Golf Course.
