Lyndie Parker & Sheriff Justin Smith
Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith is pleased to announce that Lyndie Parker is this year's recipient of the County Sheriffs of Colorado (CSOC) scholarship award for Larimer County. Lyndie is a senior at Loveland High School and is set to graduate this May. She plans on attending the University of Colorado in Boulder to study molecular, cellular and developmental biology with the goal of being a pediatric oncologist. She is the daughter of Letricia Parker of Loveland.
Ms. Parker was selected for the scholarship by a local citizens' committee. The committee made their selection based upon criteria established by CSOC, including leadership, merit, character, involvement, purpose and need. Applicants were required to be full-time, legal Colorado residents who planned to attend a Colorado university, college or trade school.
CSOC, Colorado's state sheriffs' association, offered a total of 32 awards of $500 each this year to deserving high school and college students in Colorado to fund higher-level educational expenses for the 2012-2013 academic year.
This is the 33rd 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.
Anyone interested in providing continued support for this excellent program should contact the County Sheriffs of Colorado at 720-344-2763 or visit the CSOC website at www.CSOC.org
