  • Trail ride for Kinman scholarship a success

    Editor:

    The third annual Sheriff Jamie Kinman Scholarship Trail Ride, which took place on Saturday, Oct. 15, was a huge success! The proceeds of the trail ride will benefit local students who plan to attend college, in the form of an academic scholarship. We had around 90 riders this year and raised enough money to give $3,500 in scholarships. I look forward to rewarding students within our community with this money in hopes of allowing them financial relief while striving to follow their dreams.
