Colorado sheriffs offer scholarships


SUMMIT COUNTY – Sheriff John Minor announced that County Sheriffs of Colorado, Inc. (CSOC), the state Sheriffs’ Association, will award a $500 scholarship to a deserving Summit County student next spring. The Summit County Sheriff’s Office will also contribute an additional $500 scholarship, bringing the total award to $1,000 this year.

In addition to the $500 scholarships, one recipient will be selected from among the county winners to receive an additional $1,000 Eugene and Becky Battles Scholarship. Mr. Eugene D. Battles, who was from Denver, made a decision in 1994 to support the Office of Sheriff and County Sheriffs of Colorado by donating his estate for the benefit of future endeavors decided upon by the CSOC/Battles Trust Board. Eugene Battles was a charter member of CSOC and a 27-year member of the National Sheriffs’ Association.

Application packages may be picked up at Summit High School and Colorado Mountain College. Applications are also available online at, or at the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, located at 501 N. Park Ave., Breckenridge. Applications must be returned to the Sheriff’s Office by February 26, 2010.
