Three University of Colorado at Colorado Springs students majoring in criminal justice are the first recipients of the John Suthers Scholarship.
April Rogers, a junior from Craig, and Isaac Abila, a junior from Pueblo, will receive $1,000 scholarships for the 2014-and 2015 academic year. They are the second and third students to receive the award.
The first recipient, Don Apelo, a senior from Colorado Springs, received a $500 scholarship for the spring 2014 semester.
Suthers, Colorado’s Attorney General, is a scholar-in-residence at UCCS and teaches criminal justice courses. Funded by donations to the CU Foundation, the annual scholarship is awarded to students who are committed to public service.
