Sheriff Tim Pounds and the staff at the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office would like to congratulate this year’s Melvin Johnson Scholarship winners. This is the third year the Black Education Historical Exhibit (BEHE) has awarded these scholarships in memory of PFC Melvin Johnson, a local son and casualty of the Vietnam War. The scholarships will go to three seniors from the Douglas County School System to assist them in paying for college textbooks and other expenses. This year’s awards went to J. Fleming, Jr. and two other well-deserving seniors. We would like to wish them all well on life’s next big adventure.
