Delta County Sheriff Fred McKee is pleased to announce that Mckenzie Moore is this year's recipient of the County Sheriff's of Colorado (CSOC) scholarship award for Delta County.
CSOC, Colorado's state sheriff's association, offered a total of 31 awards of $500 each to deserving high school and college students, helping to provide funding for higher-level educational expenses for the 2016-2017 academic years.
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 37th 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.
