Bouquets to Zach Cox

Posted

Bouquets to Zach Cox of Green Cove Springs for being the first recipient of the Detective Dave White Scholarship in Clay County. The $3,300 scholarship gives financial assistance for a student to attend St. Johns River State College's Basic Law Enforcement Academy. Cox, 19, is employed by the Clay County Sheriff’s Office as a civilian control room operator at the Clay County Jail. His goal is to become a deputy sheriff. The scholarship memorializes Det. White, who was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a drug suspect in February 2012. His widow, Jennifer White, is a member of the scholarship committee.
