Sheriff's Foundation of Horry County        


Sheriff Phillip Thompson

I am extremely proud of the many projects and partnerships of the Horry County Sheriff's Office.  It is my belief that we are only as strong as the support we develop today and that our future is only as bright as the light we give now for others to follow tomorrow.  That is why I am most proud of the Horry County Sheriff's Foundation Scholarship program.

This non-profit foundation seeks to reward our young people who have an interest in a law enforcement career and who hold a passion to serve others through their education and experience.  We seek to give them the financial assistance they need to get started and the confidence that their efforts and intentions are recognized and worthwhile.

I have been impressed by the character and courage of our past recipients and i am looking forward to meeting the ones to follow.  These folks motivate and inspire me, and give me great excitement about the future of law enforcement.

Thank you for your support.  TOGETHER WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE...............

The Sheriff's Foundation of Horry County represents the Sheriff's Office vision of promoting professionalism through community partnerships, by providing services to the community in the form of scholarships to high school seniors seeking careers in the criminal justice field and promoting the educational development of current staff members in the form of scholarships to advance their pursuits of obtaining a college degree. 

The Foundation is fortunate to have community support through donations that allow us to hold an annual charity golf tournament that provides a continuum of educational opportunities and resources to the communities we serve.  The members of the board of directors to the Foundation and staff of the Sheriff's Office thank everyone for their continued support of this very valuable porgram.
