Sheriff Bill Elder Awards Recipient with the 2020 CSOC Scholarship

May 30, 2020

El Paso County Sheriff Bill Elder, is pleased to announce this year’s recipient of the County Sheriffs of Colorado (CSOC) Scholarship award for El Paso County.

CSOC and Colorado State Sheriffs Association offered a total of 30 awards at $500 each. These were awarded to deserving high school and college students in Colorado to fund higher-level educational expenses for the 2020-2021 academic year.

A citizens committee selected the winner for each county. Committees made their selections based upon criteria established by CSOC, including leadership, merit, character, and community involvement. Applicants were required to be full-time, legal Colorado residents who planned to attend a Colorado university, college or trade school.

CSOC established the scholarship program in 1978. Since then, this effort has continued as a meaningful expression of each sheriff's confidence for each recipient's educational goals. Monies for the program are derived, in part, from the CSOC Honorary Membership fund, which consists of contributions from individual citizens and businesses each year.

Congratulations Jessica on your well earned scholarship.  We wish you the very best in your future endeavors.
