J. Ross Sherohman first looked at any Public Safety matter with the eyes of a call taker and dispatcher. Having worked in Communications for Harris County Sheriff’s Department, TX DPS, and the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Department, he knew first hand of the need for training and education at agencies big and small. Ross worked with TCLEOSE to develop a call taker training curriculum which has evolved into today's state mandated 40 hours of training required of all call takers within their first year of employment. Ross was a passionate supporter of statewide 9-1-1 and a Texas-NENA board member. This scholarship is established in his memory and dedicated to his mission of improving 9-1-1 through call taker training and support.
