The Community Foundation of Washington County has announced the Williamsport High School recipient of the Officer Christopher Nicholson Scholarship.

Jason Hammond met the award criteria, and will attend York College to major in law enforcement and criminal justice.

The scholarship fund was created as a result of Nicholson's death in the line of duty as a Smithsburg police officer.

Since that day, his family, the community and the Blue Knights of Maryland have worked to support the scholarship fund, which makes awards at Nicholson's alma mater, Williamsport High School, and at Smithsburg High School.
