Sergant Dan

Sergeant Dan Starnes Memorial Scholarship Fund – 1064

The Dan Starnes Fund is a non-permanent fund which will provide scholarships to Morgan County students wishing to study law enforcement

Purpose: For a student pursuing a 2-4 year degree in law enforcement, criminal justice, public safety, or a closely related field. Applicants must have a 2.0 minimum GPA, demonstrate academic promise, and have demonstrated financial need. Preference is given to students with work experience, good character, community involvement, and a healthy lifestyle. Additional short essay required.

History:  On Dec. 19, 1975, he married Janice (Lewis) Starnes and the couple later had two sons, Dustin and Ryan, who now serves as Indiana State Troopers.

Sgt. Starnes worked as a member of the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department from 1995 to 2001. He was honored to serve Morgan County in many capacities, even outside of his job, including security for Martinsville High School, Bradford Woods, Paragon Speedway and a private investigation firm. He also worked the D.A.R.E. Program and was the Head Advisor for the Morgan County Cadet Explorer Program, working with the youth of Morgan County focusing on law enforcement careers. He was a volunteer fireman for Gregg Township for 20 years and a member of the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association. He was also active at Mt. Olive United Methodist Church and enjoyed hunting, fishing, and four-wheel riding with his sons. He was a great family man- his wife of 25 years, Janice, and his sons Dustin & Ryan were the most important part of his life.

Sgt. Starnes was shot while on duty on Flag Day, June 14, 2001, and died on July 10, 2001, from his injuries. His son, Ryan, was riding along with him as part of his college internship program and was also shot and slightly injured. His family was determined to make sure that his memory would not be forgotten, so in 2001 they established the Sergeant Dan Starnes Memorial Scholarship at the Community Foundation of Morgan County to provide scholarships for Morgan County residents to study law enforcement or criminal justice.

Interested individuals may donate to this fund online, or by contacting the Community Foundation of Morgan County and noting that the gift should be placed in the Sergeant Dan Starnes Memorial Scholarship fund.
