Jeremy Reed of Grand Rapids, a 2009 Greenway High School graduate, is the first recipient of a scholarship honoring the memory of a Central Lakes College Criminal Justice graduate. Reed receives $500 as winner of the Patrick Jay Callaghan Memorial Scholarship, an annual award earmarked for a current CLC law enforcement student. The Central Lakes College Foundation directs the application screening and awarding through a fund established by instructor Dave Stumpf of the Criminal Justice faculty. Callaghan, a 1999 CLC graduate and former Raider baseball player during his two years at CLC, was an Alexandria police officer when he died at age 31 in a snowmobile accident last January. The committee that interviewed applicants and chose Reed for the scholarship included two Alexandria High School graduates who came to CLC with Callaghan in 1997 -- JJ Larson and Josh Wilcox.
