HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 25, 2010 – Jeff Karpovich, CPP chief of security and director of transportation at High Point University, recently took to the ice for a good cause – he refereed a charity ice hockey game at the Greensboro Ice House on Feb. 21.
The event, called the “Police Charity Ice Hockey Game,” was held to raise funds for the Sgt. Mickey Hutchens Memorial Scholarship Fund. Hutchens was killed on duty in October 2009.
“I am tightly connected to the Triad law enforcement community, and as a former police officer and hockey official, I thought I could give back by volunteering to referee,” Karpovich says.
Police officers from the Triad participated in the event, including officers from Winston-Salem, Greensboro, Burlington and High Point.
