On June 9, 2010, Adams County Sheriff Doug Darr presented Zachary (Zach) Albers, of Brighton, with a $500 scholarship from the County Sheriffs of Colorado, Inc. (CSOC). A committee reviewed numerous applicants and made their selection based upon the candidate’s leadership, merit, character, involvement, career purpose, and need.

Zach Albers graduated from Brighton High School in May 2010, with a 4.038-weighted average. He received Academic Letters from 2007-2010 and was the Rotary Academic and Civic Student of the Month in 2010. Zach developed his leadership abilities and supported his community by; serving on the student government, participating in varsity sports, the Future Business Leaders of America, working as a LINK leader to support younger students, and participating in the United Power Leadership Camp. John Biner, the Principal of Brighton High School, wrote, “...he exemplifies the qualities that are the cornerstone of an academic and civic leader.” Zach intends on studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs.

Sheriff Darr stated, “First and foremost, I would like to congratulate Zach. There were several deserving applicants but Zach distinguished himself as the person who should receive the scholarship. He has demonstrated his commitment to succeeding through hard work and determination. He established his goals and he is taking the necessary actions to achieve them. I congratulate Zach on his accomplishments and I wish him the best in what appears to be a very bright future.”

As the Adams County recipient, Zach is now competing, with the winners from other counties, to receive the $1,000 Eugene and Becky Battles Scholarship.
