Peter L. Gonzalez, Archuleta County sheriff, is pleased to announce that Gabrielle Pajak is this year’s recipient of the County Sheriffs of Colorado (CSOC) scholarship award for Archuleta County.
CSOC, Colorado’s state sheriff’s association, offered a total of 32 awards of $500 each this year to deserving high school and college students in Colorado to fund higher-level education expenses for the 2013-2024 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 34th 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 the individual citizens and businesses each year.
If you are interested in providing continued support for this program, contact the County Sheriffs of Colorado at (720) 344-2763 or visit the website at www.CSOC.org.
