ROCKINGHAM — Two Sundays ago, July 24, Sandy Searcy had the honor of presenting two memorial scholarships in celebration of her late husband, John Searcy, who dedicated his life to a career in law enforcement.
A former Rockingham police officer and Richmond County magistrate, John Searcy suddenly passed away Oct. 2014 of a heart attack.
Due to the success of the second annual John B. Searcy Memorial Golf Tournament that was held this past April, both Jeremy Webster and Keith Mabe received a scholarship that will help fund their future criminal justice studies.
Webster, son of Amy and Roger Webster, is a 2016 graduate of Richmond County Early College and will attend UNC Pembroke this upcoming school year.
Mabe, husband of Holly Mabe, is a Lieutenant with Richmond County Sheriff’s Department. He is a Basic Law Enforcement Training instructor and is enrolling at Richmond Community College to obtain his Associate’s degree.
