Cayuga County Sheriff David Gould has presented a 2009 New York State Sheriffs' Association Scholarship to Brian Locastro of Auburn, a Cayuga Community College student. Locastro, who is majoring in Criminal Justice: Police Science, was awarded the $500 scholarship based on his academic performance and his plan to work in law enforcement after graduation.
"Brian has let nothing deter him in his pursuit of his goals," stated Sheriff Gould. "He exhibits all the qualities we look for in our scholarship recipients. We are proud to recognize and reward Brian for his efforts."
The scholarship is given by the New York State Sheriffs' Association annually to one recipient at each community college in the state. This is the twenty-first year in which the scholarship has been awarded at Cayuga Community College.
