BRAINERD — Crow Wing County Sheriff Scott Goddard announced Thursday, Jan. 20, two local college students, Jennifer Strack of Brainerd and Jenna Lawin of Holdingford, were awarded $2,000 in scholarships from the Minnesota Sheriff’s Association.

The association gives special recognition to the financial needs of students attending the peace officer skills course or one of the two or four-year law enforcement degree colleges.

“I am pleased and honored that two of the 24 scholarship winners are local college students. The award amounts increased this year significantly to aid students financially,” Goddard said in a news release. “We are fortunate to have Central Lakes College’s Criminal Justice program here in Brainerd to provide the education needed to produce future law enforcement applicants.
