RBC I Rio Blanco County Sheriff Si Woodruff announced Monday that the County Sheriffs of Colorado (CSOC) will award a $5,000 scholarship to a deserving Rio Blanco County student this spring.
Woodruff said the CSOC considers this an investment in the future and believes that the membership is helping to provide deserving students with an opportunity to make a positive contribution to society.
Any legal permanent resident of Rio Blanco County enrolled in or applying to a vocational training program or institution of high learning in Colorado as full- or part-time students is eligible to apply. There are no restrictions as to the course of study.
Completed application packets must be received at the sheriff’s office by 5 p.m. on March 10.
For more information or to obtain applications, students should contact their high school counselors, the Colorado Northwest Community College office or Rio Blanco County Undersheriff Michael Joos.
Local applications will be reviewed by a local citizen committee appointed by Woodruff, and a selection will be made on the basis of criteria established by the CSOCf, including leadership, merit, character, involvement and career purpose.
