Don Self Integrity Scholarship

The Deputy Don Self Integrity Club Scholarship honors our original Antelope Valley Mall deputy who believed kids were not bad, just sometimes used poor judgment, resulting in the loss of their integrity, dignity
and credibility.

Deputy Self was assigned to the A.V.Mall and established the Integrity Club to teach juveniles the “importance of Integrity, Dignity and Credibility in their daily lives. As law enforcement officers, our time with these young people is limited. We are brought together because of their wrong doing. The time spent with this young offender may be short, but the impact may be a life time. If we teach them the true meaning of Integrity, Dignity and Credibility, it could be the most important lesson they will ever learn” noted Deputy Self.

We continue to assist our Antelope Valley youth with scholarships in his honor. Don died of cancer in 2010.

Congratulations to the 2019 Don Self Integrity Scholarship Winners!  Join us at our Annual Membership Meeting where will honor these amazing young people at Hilton Garden Inn on Wednesday, June 5th, at 11:30am.
