Central High School student awarded scholarship

Heather L. Hunt, and Sheriff Matt Lewis
MESA COUNTY, Colo – Central High School senior Heather L. Hunt is this year’s recipient of the County Sheriffs of Colorado, CSOC, scholarship award for Mesa County.

Heather was selected because of her outstanding leadership, involvement in the community and character.

Heather is planning on attending Western State Colorado University in the fall to study Wildlife Biology and Land Management.  Her ultimate goal is to one day work for Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

The Mesa County Sheriff’s Office is honored to be able to help her obtain that goal.

CSOC offered a total of 31 awards of $500 each this year to deserving high school and college students in Colorado to fund higher education expenses for the 2016-2017 academic year.

This is the 37th year for the CSOC scholarship program. 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.
