WYTHEVILLE, Va. – The Wythe County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting the sixteenth annual Cliff Dicker Memorial Scholarship Golf Classic on Friday, May 16, 2014, at the Wytheville Golf Club.
The proceeds of the event will be used to fund the Cliff Dicker Memorial Scholarship Fund, a long running scholarship that provides $4,500 annually to two graduating high school students from each of the county’s three public high schools.
Individuals or teams interested in participating in the four-person team captain’s choice tournament are encouraged to call the county’s sheriff’s office at 276-223-6011.
The golf classic, which will be held during National Police Week, will honor Wythe County’s only deputy to be killed in the line of duty. Deputy Dicker was brutally murdered in a line of duty shooting on December 6, 1994.
Graduating seniors wishing to make application to the scholarship fund must have their applications submitted to the Wythe County Sheriff’s Office no later than 4 p.m. on May 2, 2014; winners will be announced on May 9, 2014. Applications can be picked up at local schools or at the sheriff’s office. Interested students may contact the sheriff’s office for more information.
