SHERIFF SCHROETLIN ANNOUNCES COUNTY SHERIFFS OF COLORADO SCHOLARSHIP WINNER
GRAND COUNTY, CO – Grand County Sheriff Brett Schroetlin is pleased to announce that Forest Schofield, 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 over 20 awards of $500 each this year to deserving high school and college students in Colorado to fund higher-level educational expenses for the 2023-2024 academic year.
A citizens’ committee selected the winner for 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.
This is the 45th year for the CSOC scholarship program. 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,
