Congratulations to Lyndie Parker of Loveland! The Larimer County Sheriff's Office announced that Lyndie is the winner of the Colorado Sheriffs of Colorado scholarship for Larimer County. Lyndie is a senior at Loveland High School and will graduate in May. She plans on attending the University of Colorado in Boulder to study molecular, cellular and developmental biology. Lyndie 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.

Congratulations Lyndie! This year the CSOC offered a total of 32 awards of $500 each this year to deserving high school and college students in Colorado.
