Sheriff John Middleton Memorial Scholarship

Friends of the late Sheriff John Middleton established this fund to honor the Sheriff who passed away on September 21, 1991. John Middleton graduated from Ballinger High School and served in the United States Army for two years. He joined the Taylor County Sheriff’s Office as a guard, was promoted to a deputy and then to chief criminal investigator. He was elected sheriff in 1980, re-elected in 1984 and 1988. In the opinion of many people, John Middleton was known to be one of the most honest, loyal and dedicated men ever to serve Taylor County and accomplished infinitely more than his job demanded. The Sheriff John Middleton Scholarship will continue to honor one of Taylor County’s finest men.
