Alexandria Farnsworth of Paonia is this year's recipient of the County Sheriffs of Colorado (CSOC) scholarship award for Delta County. The award was presented by Delta County Sheriff Fred McKee at a Paonia High School awards assembly last week.
CSOC, the Colorado state sheriffs 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 educational expenses for the 2012-2013 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 plan to attend a Colorado university, college or trade school.
This is the 33rd 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.
