Pueblo, CO: Pueblo County Sheriff Kirk M. Taylor today announced the recipients of the 2019 County Sheriffs of Colorado Scholarship. Rye High School Senior Catherine Wolyn and Pueblo County High School’s Lane Sherwood have each been awarded a $1,000 college scholarship through the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office.

The County Sheriffs of Colorado, the state’s sheriff’s association, offers 31 scholarships of $500 each to deserving high school and college students in Colorado to fund higher education. However, Sheriff Taylor, who is a strong proponent of higher education, has traditionally awarded a $1,000 scholarship to a deserving student. This year, Taylor opted to once again award two, $1,000 scholarships due to the level of competition among the applicants.

“Both recipients are very dedicated, talented students and are most deserving of this scholarship,” said Pueblo County Sheriff Kirk M. Taylor. “Catherine and Lane are examples of the exceptional students we have in our community. I’m proud to support them in furthering their education by awarding them each a $1,000 scholarship.”

Catherine, 17, has a 4.2 GPA and is currently ranked in the Top 5 of her class at Rye High. She plans to attend Colorado State University in the fall to study neuroscience. Catherine has been involved in National Honor Society, a member of the Knowledge Bowl team, Future Farmers of America and a longtime 4-H member. She has performed a variety of volunteer service from visiting at nursing homes and community clean-ups to raising service dogs for a non-profit organization. Catherine is the daughter of Paul and Kathy Wolyn.

Lane, 18, has a 4.5 GPA and is the valedictorian of his class at Pueblo County. He plans to attend either University of Colorado-Colorado Springs or Colorado State University-Pueblo to study pre-medicine. Lane is a member of the National Honor Society and was a four-sport athlete at County having participated in football, basketball, track and baseball. He also has been named to the Colorado High School Activities Association All-State Academic first team for three consecutive years.
