On June 8,2019, friends and family of DUSM Derek Hotsinpiller will be hosting a memorial 5K race to honor his dedication and commitment for serving and protecting our community. While serving a warrant in Elkins, West Virginia, on February 16, 2011, Derek was taken from his loved ones to soon. Derek's friends and family have initiated a scholarship in his honor so that he will be forever remembered and honored as a Deputy U.S. Marshal, a beloved son, brother, grandson, nephew, brother-in-law, and lifelong friend of the Bridgeport community.

The James and Derek Hotsinpiller Scholarship Foundation will provide scholarships to Lewis, Upshur, Barbour, Taylor, Marion, Wetzel, Doddridge, Harrison and Monngalia County students that wish to pursue a higher education degree in criminal justice or social science.  Throughout the year, there are a variety of fundraising activities to help fund the scholarship.  The primary event is the Derek Hotsinpiller Fallen Stars Memorial 5K race.  Our goal is to raise $15,000 from this race to apply toward the scholarship.  

The Hotsinpiller family, the race committee and Scholarship fund want to extend our invitation for you to participate in the 9th Annual Derek Hotsinpiller Fallen Stars Memorial 5K race as a competitor, sponsor, or volunteer. 400+ runners and walkers completed the 2018 race, on what was considered and commented to be a very challenging course. We are hopeful for an even bigger turn out in 2019.
