(Hagerstown, MD) – Justin Walters, of Williamsport, has been named the first recipient of the Sgt. Richard H. Good Scholarship at Hagerstown Community College. Walters, who is studying administration of justice, is receiving $1,200 to cover tuition expenses for the fall of 2018 and spring of 2019.
Washington County Sheriff’s Office DFC Charles Enders and his wife, Tina Enders, of Hagerstown, established the scholarship last year, with a $50,000 donation to the Hagerstown Community College Foundation, in memory of Charles’s brother, Sgt. Richard H. Good.
“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.
The Good Scholarship is awarded each year to one or 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.
