TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Two Tippecanoe County students are taking home $750 scholarships from the The Indiana Sheriff's Association.

It typically gives out 40 a year around the state of Indiana.

Tippecanoe County Sheriff Bob Goldsmith presented the seniors with the scholarship money.

McCutcheon High School's Brett Hartman received one of the scholarships and so did Coralie Knight from West Lafayette High School.

A committee chooses students that are furthering their careers/education in law enforcement.

Sheriff Goldsmith said he was happy to help. 

"They're our future leaders," said Goldsmith. "Whether that is in law enforcement or something else, but they are the future of our county, our state, our country. This is just a great way to connect with them in a positive way."

To be eligible for the scholarship, the chosen students or one of their family members must be a part of the Indiana Sheriff's Association.
