Duluth man wins MN Sheriffs' Association scholarship

The Minnesota Sheriffs' Association (MSA) has announced its annual list of scholarship winners, and a Duluth man is among the 22 recipients. Christopher Streed received a $600 scholarship to assist with education costs as he pursues a degree that will lead to a career in law enforcement. St. Louis County Sheriff Ross Litman presented Streed with a check on behalf of the MSA.

Streed graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth with a Bachelor's degree in Criminology, and is currently attending Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College's Law Enforcement Skills Training Program. His goal is to one day work as a Sheriff's Deputy. 

“Law enforcement has never been an easy career, and I think it’s safe to say it’s more challenging now than it's ever been,” said Sheriff Ross Litman. “We need quality officers and so I’m very proud to assist young men and women who are still willing to pursue this rewarding, yet difficult career.”

The MSA awards scholarships each year to law enforcement students to assist with training and education expenses. This year’s recipients represent a broad spectrum of applicants, and were chosen based on qualifications and academic excellence that reflect the dedication and pride of those choosing to enter the difficult but rewarding profession of law enforcement and public service. Additional information about the award and the MSA can be found online at mnsheriffs.org.

Serving more than 200,000 people living within St. Louis County’s 7,000 square miles, the St.
Louis County Sheriff’s Office operates out of regional offices in Duluth, Virginia and Hibbing, with additional stations in Ely, Mountain Iron and Aurora.
