Summit County Sheriff's Office bestows scholarship to Dillon student

On Monday, April 7 Summit County Sheriff John Minor presented Dillon resident Micah Svenson with the agency’s annual Citizenship Award Scholarship during Summit High School’s local scholarship presentations.

In addition to receiving the Citizenship Award Scholarship, Svenson also received the County Sheriff’s of Colorado’s biannual scholarship award, which also was presented by Minor.

Svenson was selected by members of the Sheriff’s Citizens Advisory Committee from a field of over 50 applications, according to a sheriff’s office news release. The committee based their selection upon criteria including high ethical standard, outstanding citizenship, serving as an exemplary peer role model, notable public service and displaying individual courage or fortitude in the face of adversity or peer pressure.

The County Sheriff’s of Colorado — the state sheriffs’ association — offered a total of 32 awards to deserving high school and college students this year. This is the 34th year of the County Sheriffs of Colorado program, the release stated.

In the spirit of a burgeoning tradition, and having fun at one’s own expense, Minor also presented Svenson with a dozen donuts during Monday’s scholarship awards.
