Sheriff taking scholarship applications
St. Mary Parish Sheriff Mark Hebert has announced that the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Scholarship Program is available to St. Mary Parish students.
The scholarship provides assistance to qualifying Louisiana students in furthering their education and training with resources made available through the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Honorary Membership Program.
One scholarship in the amount of $500 will be awarded to a graduating high school student from St. Mary Parish.
