Beaverton student awarded scholarship

The Beaverton Optimist Club observes Optimist International Respect for Law month by awarding a scholarship to a student who plans a career in law enforcement. 

Beaverton Optimist member Marv Thompson reports that the recipient of this year's Dean Mitchell Scholarship was Conner Gilfillan.  Conner plans to attend college at Culver-Stockton College in Canton, Missouri to major in criminal justice and minor in theology. He also hopes to play football for Culver-Stockton.  

According to Marv, Conner is a very qualified student who has participated in various activities during his high school career and has a long list of accomplishments.  He aspires to some day become a police officer and at retirement become a chaplain for a police agency.
