Sheriff Zordel with Paige Dempsey

Prowers County Sheriff, Sam Zordel, is pleased to announce that Paige Dempsey is this year’s recipient of the County Sheriffs of Colorado, CSOC, scholarship award for Prowers County.

CSOC, Colorado’s state sheriffs’ association, offered a total of 31 awards of $500 each, this year to deserving high school and college students in Colorado to fund higher-level education expenses for the 2016-2017 academic year.

A citizens’ committee selected the winner for each county. Committees made their selections based on 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.

If you are interested in providing continued support for this excellent program, please contact the County Sheriffs of Colorado at 720-344-2763 or visit our website:
