Douglas County Sheriff, David A. Weaver, is pleased to announce that Bailey McHenry is this year’s recipient of the County Sheriff’s of Colorado, CSOC, scholarship award for Douglas County. Bailey received her award during the May 15th Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Law Enforcement Memorial Awards Ceremony, held at the Robert A Christensen Justice Center. Bailey just graduated from Douglas County High School and plans to attend Colorado State University to pursue a degree in Agriculture.
CSOC, Colorado’s state sheriff’s association, offered a total of 32 awards of $500 each this year to deserving high school and college students in Colorado to fund higher-level educational expenses for the 2009-2010 academic year.
A citizens’ committee selected the winner for each county. Committees made their selections based upon criteria established by CSOC, including ability, merit, character, sincerity, purpose and need. Applicants were required to be full-time, legal Colorado residents who planned to attend a Colorado university, college, or trade-school.
According to Don Christensen, CSOC Executive Director, this is the thirtieth year for the CSOC scholarship program. Monies for the program are derived, in part, from the CSOC honorary membership fund, which consists of contributions fro individual citizens and businesses each year.
