(La Porte, IN) - A La Porte County student has won a statewide scholarship from the Indiana Sheriff’s Association.
Recent La Porte High School graduate Makenna Micallef is one of 40 recipients in Indiana to receive the scholarship. Micallef will be attending Indiana University in the fall to major in Criminal Justice and Criminology and minor in Psychology. She lives in La Porte and is the daughter of Cheryl Braun.
Micallef was recognized recently at this month's Merit Board meeting. Said Sheriff John Boyd, “ It is always a pleasure to recognize and reward young people for their hard work and academic achievements. Makenna is a wonderful young ambassador for La Porte County and the ISA. The men and women of the La Porte County Sheriff’s Office are very proud of her.”
Two current La Porte County Sheriff’s patrol officers, David Grimberg and Jacob Payne, are both prior recipients of the same ISA scholarship.
