Vail Valley: Local student earns state sheriffs’ association scholarship
Vail, CO, Colorado
Eagle County Sheriff Joe Hoy recently announced that Vail Valley student Alisandra Gulick is this year’s recipient of the County Sheriffs of Colorado scholarship award for Eagle County.
The state sheriff’s association every year presents 32 awards of $500 each to high school and college students in Colorado to fund higher educational expenses.
A citizens’ committee selected the winner for each county based on criteria including leadership, merit, character, involvement, purpose, and need. Applicants are required to be full-time, legal Colorado residents who plan to attend a Colorado university, college, or trade school.
The state association has presented the scholarships for 31 years. Funds for the program come, in part, from the association’s honorary membership find, which consists of contributions from individual citizens and businesses.
