Kaycee Bennett, Shaylah Lucero, David McRee, Morgan Schaaf, Payton Shahan and Marissa Talamante have each been awarded the Chase Regester Memorial Scholarship and will each receive $300 for the 2015-16 academic year.
This scholarship is designed to honor the memory of Charles L. Regester III — “Chase” — (May 29, 1986-Aug. 2, 2006) who was raised on a ranch and spent his childhood and youth involved in 4-H, rodeos and ranch life. He graduated from Pagosa Springs High School in May 2005 and was pursuing ranching as a career. Regester loved animals, the great outdoors, his friends and family and had a great sense of humor and a “whipping and spurring” approach to life.
