(August 24, 2017) – Washington County Sheriff’s Office DFC Charles Enders and his wife, Tina Enders, of Hagerstown, recently made a $50,000 donation to the Hagerstown Community College Foundation, in memory of Charles’s brother, Sgt. Richard H. Good, who died suddenly, July 16, at his home. He was 68 years old.
“Rick was loyal and dedicated to his job and friends,” said Charles Enders. “We wanted to establish this scholarship at HCC to pay permanent tribute to his career as an outstanding officer.”
Good retired from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office in 1996 with the rank of sergeant. After that, he worked as an investigator for the State of Maryland and most recently as a Circuit Court bailiff for The Honorable Judge Mark Boyer of Washington County Maryland. Both Sgt. Good and his brother, DFC Enders, earned associate degrees in administration of justice from HCC. Good was also a graduate of the FBI National Academy.
“We are very grateful to the Enders for providing new opportunities for young people to enter the field of law enforcement through HCC's ADJ program,” said Andrew Kramer, assistant professor of administration of justice at HCC. “In today's environment, when law enforcement officers and the profession itself face such profound challenges, this endowment is of tremendous significance.”
The Sgt. Richard H. Good scholarship will be awarded each year to two HCC administration of justice majors who aim to be police officers, are residents of Maryland, attend full time, and maintain a 3.0 grade point average.
A named endowed scholarship given to HCC is held in trust by the HCC Foundation, Inc., and the interest from that gift is awarded annually to HCC students to help cover their tuition needs. The Richard H. Good Scholarship will remain in trust for perpetuity and will be a living legacy to Sgt. Good that will benefit generations of future HCC students.
