Kiowa County Sheriff Casey Sheridan has announced that Madison Kelley will be the recipient of this year's County Sheriffs of Colorado scholarship award for Kiowa County.
CSOC offered 31 $500 scholarships this year to deserving high school and college students across the state to help fund their higher education expenses during the 2018-19 school year.
A committee made up of local citizens selects the winner for each county. Decisions are based on criteria such as leadership, merit, character, involvement, purpose and need. Applicants must be a full-time resident of the state and plan to attend a Colorado university, college or trade school.
Support for the program, now in its 39thyear, is partially derived from contributions from individuals and businesses to the CSOC honorary membership fund. Anyone interested in supporting the scholarship program can contact County Sheriffs of Colorado at 720-344-2763 or visit coloradosheriffs.org
