Jefferson County, CO. – Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Shrader is pleased to announce Sadie Jonson as this year’s recipient of the County Sheriffs of Colorado (CSOC) scholarship award for Jefferson County. Ms. Jonson will be recognized by the sheriff at the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office during a ceremony on May 15, 2019 at 12:30 p.m.
This year, CSOC, the state’s sheriffs association, awarded more than 30 awards in the amount of $500 each to deserving Colorado high school and college students to fund higher-level educational expenses for the 2019-2020 academic year. The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is matching the scholarship with an additional $500 award for Ms. Jonson.
Citizen committees were formed to select each county’s recipient. Committees made their selection based on criteria established by CSOC, including leadership, merit, character, involvement, purpose, and need. Applicants are required to be full-time, legal Colorado residents who plan to attend a Colorado university, college, or trade school this fall.
The CSOC scholarship program is in its 40th year. Monies for the program are derived, in part, from the CSOC honorary membership fund, which consists of contributions from individuals and businesses throughout the year.
If you are interested in providing continued support for this excellent program, please contact County Sheriffs of Colorado at 720-344-2762 or visit the website www.CSOC.org.
