SHERIFF SCHROETLIN ANNOUNCES COUNTY SHERIFFS OF COLORADO SCHOLARSHIP WINNER
GRAND COUNTY, CO – Grand County Sheriff Brett Schroetlin is pleased to announce that Lesley Ruiz, a Senior at Middle Park High School in Granby, Colorado, is this year’s recipient of the County Sheriffs of Colorado (CSOC), scholarship award for Grand County.
CSOC, Colorado’s state sheriffs’ association, offered a total of 30 awards of $500 each this year to deserving high school and college students in Colorado to fund higher-level educational expenses for the 2021-2022 academic year.
A citizens’ committee selected the winner from each county. Committees made their selections based upon criteria established by CSOC, including leadership, merit, character, involvement, purpose and need. Applicants were required to be full-time, legal Colorado residents who planned to attend a Colorado university, college or trade school.
CSOC established the scholarship program in 1978. Since then, this effort has continued as a meaningful expression of the sheriffs’ confidence in and respect for education and training. Monies for the program are derived, in part, from the CSOC honorary membership fund, which consists of contributions from individual citizens and businesses each year.
If you are interested in providing continued support for this excellent program,
