Brett Meisinger, Taylor Lee-Hammer and Madison Lewis have each been awarded the Chase Regester Memorial Scholarship for the 2016-17 academic year.
Brett will receive $600 and Taylor and Madison will receive $300 each.
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. Chase loved animals, the great outdoors, his friends and family and had a great sense of humor and a “whipping and spurring” approach to life.
