Angela Raab, a graduate of Nature Coast Technical High School; Megan England, a graduate of Springstead High School, and Christopher P. Kline, a graduate of Hernando High School, were the recipients of the Richard Buckingham Community Service Scholarships offered by Hernando County Sheriff's Office Youth Education Services.

The recipients were selected based on volunteering a considerable number of hours outside of school activities with an organization in Hernando County, achieving at least a 2.0 grade point average and planning to enroll as a full-time student in an accredited college, university or trade school.

A selection committee from the Hernando County Sheriff's Office YES board of directors reviewed all the applications and chose the recipients. Each received a $1,000 scholarship, presented by Hernando County Sheriff Richard B. Nugent.
