9? '~ September 18, 2019 Page 5C iRE'pOrter 7 Monroe County deputy Michael Norris was mortally wounded on Sept. 13, 2014 while re- sponding to a report of a man considering suicide off Pate Road. Norris was lust 24, and left behind his young wife and grieving parents and brother. His fellow deputy Jeff Wilson was shot but survived. The Reporter has since created the Michael NorrJs Memorial Scholarship to encourage young people with good character from Monroe County, like NorrJs, to pursue education and a career in law enforcement and public service. Over the past four years the Norris Scholarship has been able to give away more than $10,000 in scholarships to worthy Monroe County youngsters interested in law enforcement or other first responder type ca- reer, all due to the generous donations and the support of this community. This page spread is published every year on the anniversary of Norris' death to remind the community of his sacrifice. Proceeds from these business ads go to help fund the scholarship. To make your tax- deductible gift, send a check to Norris Scholarship, PO Box 795, Forsyth, Ga. 31029. Leave your address so we can send a receipt for your tax-deductible gift. Mary Persons senior Zach Mooney, right, received the $4,000 Deputy Mi- chael Norris Scholarship from Reporter publisher Will Davis in 2019. The scholarship is for Monroe County young men and women interested in a career in public safety. The Reporter started the scholarship in memory of Norris, who was killed in the line of duty in 2014. Mooney said it's an honor to receive the scholarship since Norris was his hero as he was growing up. Strong local support has allowed the scholarship to increase every year it has been given. Tax deductible donations can be sent to PO Box 795, Forsyth, GA 30129. Davis said they will likely be able to give an even bigger scholar- ship next year thanks to the annual golf tournament and other fund raisers. + Danny McKinney Owner (478) 992-8326 24-Hour Emerge'ncy Service Specialty Power miHdows Robby Whitehead President 140 Industrial Park Drive Forsyth, GA 31029 (478) 994-9248 19 N.
