The Yavapai County Mounted Sheriff's Posse (YCMSP) has announced the winners of the Posse scholarships for 2024. 

A total of 37 deserving high school seniors who live in the county each received a $1000 grant for the next school year. Thirty of those are for any college, university or trade school of the student's choice, and seven are Ralph Hooker Memorial Foundation awards which are for those who will attend Yavapai College. (The winners of the Ralph Hooker awards are listed in a previous story on this webpage). 

The Posse has awarded nearly $660,000 in grants to high school seniors in this county since 1958. YCMSP raises money for the scholarships mainly through four major fundraising events each year, including the recent May Roping in Prescott.
