Sergeant Glenn A. Andes
Sergeant Glenn A. Andes died July 26, 1998. Sergeant Andes drowned, while saving the life of his son, after having been caught in a riptide current. He was vacationing with his family in North Carolina.
Sergeant Andes was in charge of the Crime Prevention Unit and was a long-time DARE Officer for Rockingham County. He was a 16 year veteran of the Rockingham County Sheriff's Office. His unit number, 220, has been permanently retired. He is survived by his wife, son, mother, and brothers.
In his honor, the Glenn Andes Youth Enhancement Fund has been created to help the youth of our community. Profits from an annual golf tournament went directly to this fund. This year, scholarships in the amount of $1000 will be awarded to four high school seniors.
Since 1999, the Glenn Andes Youth Enhancement Fund has awarded $31,000 in scholarships. The fund has also made donations to other non-profit organizations that benefit children, which includes Big Brothers / Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Club, and Camp Kaleidoscope. These organizations have received approximately $18,000 from the fund.
The Sheriff would like to thank all of the sponsors, donors, and participants in all of the past golf tournaments.
