Jason Hammond - Recipient of the Officer Christopher Nicholson Scholarship

The Community Foundation of Washington County MD, Inc. is proud to announce the Williamsport High School recipient of the Officer Christopher Nicholson Scholarship. Jason Hammond met the award criteria and will attend York College to major in law enforcement and criminal justice. This scholarship fund was created as a result of Christopher's tragic death in the line of duty as a Smithsburg Police Officer. Since that day, his family, the community and the Blue Knights of Maryland have worked tirelessly to support this scholarship fund, which makes awards at Chris's alma mater, Williamsport High School, and at Smithsburg High School.
