Below is a letter from Frankie’s sister:
I began the Deputy Frankie Lynn
Betterton Scholarship in 2012 at The
Community Foundation in memory of my
brother, Frankie a Pittsylvania County Sherriff
Deputy who was killed on the job during a traffic
stop on May 17, 2002. The fund will award
scholarships to deserving Dan River Region
residents who are financially in need and
pursuing a career in law enforcement.
Thank you for your help in building
this scholarship so we can honor Frankie’s
legacy and help future law enforcement officers.
We hope to receive donations of all sizes from
many different people so this can grow to a
sizable scholarship that will benefit generations
of students to come!
You can easily give to the Deputy
Frankie Lynn Betterton Scholarship via
credit card online at www.cfdrr.org. Tax
deductible gifts may also be made in honor or
memory of loved ones. Stock gifts, paid up
life insurance gifts, personal property, IRA or
will bequests can also be made directly to
the scholarship. Contact The Community
Foundation at 434-793-0884 for more
Thank you for joining me to create this
lasting legacy for my brother, Frankie Betterton.
