Sheriff’s Office taking award applications

The Moffat County Sheriff’s Office, in conjunction with the County Sheriff’s of Colorado, is taking applications for scholarships. Every other year, the CSPC awards a $500 scholarship, and the Moffat County Sheriff’s Office contributes an additional $500 for a total of $1,000. In addition, two scholarships are awarded by the Sheriff’s Office for $1,000 each.

The CSOC scholarship requires that the student attend a Colorado educational institution while the Sheriff’s Office scholarship does not. Scholarship applications are due Feb. 28 and can be picked up at the Moffat County High School or the Moffat County Sheriff’s Office.

For the 2006 scholarship year, one student out of the 31 CSOC scholarship winners also will receive the $1,000 Eugene/Becky Battles Scholarship. Battles donated his estate to CSOC in 1994.

Last year’s scholarship winners were Alesha Overton, Michael Babb and Stetson Otero.
