A scholarship has been established at the Northwestern State University Foundation in memory of Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s deputy and NSU alumnus Ricky Issac Jr., who died in an on-duty automobile accident Saturday.

The Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office and the NSU Department of Criminal Justice, History and Social Sciences established the scholarship. Donations can be made by mail at the following address: Office of University Advancement, 535 University Parkway, Natchitoches LA 71497. A notation should be made that the donation is for the Ricky Issac Jr. Scholarship.

The scholarship will be awarded to a criminal justice major with a preference toward a Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy or family member.

Issac, who earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice, was a member of the NSU football team and was the 2011 Defensive Most Valuable Player. He lettered in football for four years.

Issac was active in the NSU Huddle of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He went to work at the NPSO soon after graduation in December 2011, and served as the NSU football team’s police escort for the 2012 squad’s last two road trips to Central Arkansas and Stephen F. Austin.

For more information, call the NSU Foundation at 357-4414.
