The Trooper Kevin Conner Memorial Scholarship committee is now accepting applications. The deadline is fast approaching, and students should act quickly.

A $5,000 scholarship and a $1,500 scholarship are offered in memory of the late Master Trooper Kevin Conner. Master Trooper Conner was killed in the line of duty on October 17th, 2018.

Raised in Bladen County, Kevin’s life-long dream was to be a state trooper, which came true in 2007. He was a humanitarian and public servant, both on and off the job.

According to the memorial website, the Trooper Kevin Conner Memorial Foundation was established in 2019 to give back and serve the communities that Kevin loved and served. Through the generosity and support of sponsors and fundraising efforts, the Foundation has already given over $10,000 in college scholarships to Columbus and Bladen Counties students. It has plans for expansion in the works. Kevin’s legacy of service lives on, and his sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Students may apply by submitting an application on the scholarship website: https://kevinconnermemorial.org/scholarship/. The deadline to apply is March 31, 2023.
