Montezuma County Sheriff Steven D. Nowlin announced that Tatum Majors, who attends Dolores High School, is this year’s recipient of the Montezuma County Sheriff’s Office scholarship award.
Montezuma County Sheriff’s Office offered a scholarship award of $1,000 this year to a deserving high school student in Colorado to fund higher-level educational expenses for the 2019-2020 academic year.
A committee selected the winner. The committee made its selection based upon criteria established by application forms 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.
This is the second year of the Montezuma County Sheriff’s Office scholarship program. Money for the program was generated from an in-house fundraiser held by Sheriff’s Office employees.
