Founders of the John Mesh Memorial Scholarship fund, John Sirna and Jim Mesh, presented hand-made, custom memorial blue line flags this week to representatives of the Clinton Missouri Police Department. The flags honor two fallen Clinton, MO Police officers, Gary Lee Michael and Christopher Ryan Morton, who were killed in the line of duty within the last year. Receiving the plaques are Clinton Officer Mike Nelson, Sergeant Joel Parney and Officer Scott Brandt.

The flags were made and donated to the department by Jay Commuso of Colorado Springs, Colorado, who is one of the major sponsoring partners of the John V. Mesh Memorial Scholarship Fund’s annual sporting clay shoot, which raises funds for the Missouri Department of Conservation’s Discover Girls Nature Camp. This year’s shoot is scheduled for August 25th at the Powder Creek Shooting Park in Lenexa, Kansas. Last year the event raised more than $10,000, which sponsored fifteen girls between the ages of 11-15 to attend the camp in Lincoln County, MO. To learn more about the John V. Mesh Memorial Scholarship Fund, visit johnvmesh.org.
