This scholarship fund has been established in memory of Mike Stone to honor his lifelong commitment to law enforcement and the communities he served within Humboldt County. Mike completed College of the Redwoods Police Academy. Thereafter, he worked in corrections, street and beach patrol, drug enforcement, investigation, and courts, was on the county arson task force and on the SWAT Team. He was a woods patrolman for Simpson Timber Company and was the first Trinidad City police officer. In retirement, Mike continued to work for Humboldt County as extra help and for the federal marshal's office transporting prisoners and working courts. It is our wish that other young people from the North Coast have the opportunity to complete police academy and enter law enforcement, and that financial need not hinder their goal.
