The Chase Regester Memorial Scholarship is designed to honor the memory of Charles "Chase" L. Regester III (May 29, 1986-August 2, 2006) who was raised on a ranch and spent his childhood and youth involved in 4-H, rodeos, and ranch life. He graduated from Pagosa Springs High School in May 2005 and was pursuing ranching as a career. Chase loved animals, the great outdoors, his friends and family and had a great sense of humor and a "whipping and spurring" approach to life. 

This scholarship was endowed by Mr. and Mrs. Robert Linder to honor Chase and his family for living and preserving the history and traditions of the American West. Mr. and Mrs. Charles Russell , Jr. added to that endowment.
