WCO David L. Grove Memorial Run - March 30
Posted: February 15, 2013
WCO David L. Grove, a 2004 graduate of the Wildlife and Fisheries Science baccalaureate degree program, was shot and killed in the line of duty on November 11, 2010 while attempting to apprehend two deer poaching suspects. On October 2, 2012, almost two years later, Christopher L. Johnson was convicted of first degree murder and subsequently sentenced to death for David’s murder. WCO Grove was committed to the field of conservation law enforcement and was himself an avid hunter and fisherman.
The Conservation Officers of Pennsylvania Association (COPA) is currently raising funds for an endowed scholarship at Penn State in WCO Grove’s honor.
COPA is hosting a 5-K Run on March 30, 2013 at John C. Rudy County Park, in York, PA. All proceeds from the race will benefit the WCO David L. Grove Scholarship Fund. Pre-register by March 17.
