Jerry Cotton 

Golfers and friends enjoyed the 7th Annual Jerry Cotton Memorial Golf Tournament held September 15, 2013 at Emerald Greens Golf Course in Hastings. The tournament supports the Jerry Cotton Scholarship Fund at the Metropolitan State University Foundation which benefits students going into Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice programs. Jerry's dream of educating students is living on through these scholarships. We are honored and proud to carry on his dream!

Jerry graduated from Metropolitan State University in 2002 after working on his degree for several years, working full-time at the Dakota County Sheriff's Office and raising a family of four with his wife, Jan.
