On May 4, 2019, a family lost a beloved son, brother, fiancé – and Mooresville lost one of its finest and bravest.
To mark one year since K9 Officer Jordan Sheldon was killed in the line of duty, a small group of area residents is urging the community to honor the fallen officer by supporting an effort his family says would have meant the world to him.
The goal: to raise at least $20,000 by Monday, May 4, to finish funding Mitchell Community College’s endowment scholarship in Jordan’s name.
Once the Officer Jordan H. Sheldon Memorial Scholarship is fully funded, at a minimum of $50,000, the interest earned on the principal investment will provide at least two scholarships a year – forever – to cadets attending Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET).

Iredell County Fraternal Order of Police currently sponsors the Back To School FOP Cops & Kids Program and the Christmas FOP Cops & Kids Program.
These programs are designed to build relationships between our Local Lodge and the children of Iredell County.
Circa 1993-94, brought the initial scholarship initiative to NC FOP Lodge 10. From its simple beginning, it has grown and developed into a highly successful program.
The first fund raising campaign in support of the program was a golf tournament that was held at the Lakewood Golf Club in Statesville. The event was held in honor, and in the memory of Statesville PD’s first K-9 officer, Nelson Hollar, who had passed away after a courageous battle with cancer.
Because of its growing success, in 2001-02, a committee was formed to refine and administer the program, as we see it today. New criteria was established to give the opportunity for a wider recipient base. Virtually all members of the lodge and their families are given priority. In addition, all seniors at our local high schools are encouraged to participate in the selection process.
