The Kosciusko County Community Foundation recently awarded three Warsaw-area students with Phillip Hochstetler Memorial Scholarships.
The scholarships are in honor of Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department Detective Sgt. Phil Hochstetler, who was shot and killed in the line of duty on June 29, 1994, while investigating a burglary suspect.
Hochstetler was pursuing a degree in criminal justice at the time of his death, and former Sheriff Aaron Rovenstine began the scholarship program for local students who were also pursuing a career in the criminal justice field.
This year’s recipients are Zarek Finley, Gabby Monroy and Jordan Acton.
