LAURINBURG — Magistrate John Searcy was well known for giving to others and making himself available to those in need of assistance.

Though he died unexpectedly in October 2014, family members aim to keep Searcy’s legacy alive through the John B. Searcy Memorial Scholarship at Richmond Community College. The scholarship will be awarded to a graduating high school student who has chosen to continue their education in the criminal justice field at RCC.

To support the scholarship, Searcy’s family and friends of John are scheduling a golf tournament on Saturday, April 18 at Scotch Meadows Country Club in Laurinburg. Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m. with a 9:30 a.m. shotgun start. Lunch will be available at 1:30 p.m. The tournament is a four-man captain’s choice.

Cost is $40 per person and $40 per hole sponsor. A four-person team enters for $200 and includes a hole sponsor.

His wife, Sandy Searcy, spoke of how her late husband “loved God, his family, his career and his community.  During his law enforcement and judicial career, John also taught high school students during an extended program held at Richmond Senior High for students who could not excel in the day classroom.  He had a desire for success for each student.  He gave continuously of himself and made huge accomplishments of making a difference in the lives of everyone he encountered.”

Early registration is currently in process and walk-in registrations can be completed at Sandhills Office Systems located on Highway 74 in Rockingham.  Entry forms can also be mailed to the John B. Searcy Memorial Scholarship Fund, 574 Richmond Road Ext., Rockingham.
