Area students win college scholarships

Ten students from throughout Colorado have received a total of $50,000 in scholarships from the Credit Union of Colorado Foundation. Each student received a $5,000 scholarship for the 2019-20 school year.

The scholarship recipients from the Boulder Valley and Northern Colorado, or students attending schools in those regions, are:

  • Kassidi Day, Pueblo, CU Boulder
  • Gillian Lasher, Fort Collins, Colorado College
  • Kelsey Martin, Frederick, CU Denver
  • Madison Tesch, Littleton, University of Northern Colorado        

Scholarship eligibility was extended to students who are Colorado residents and enrolled in, or scheduled to enter, an accredited college or university as an undergraduate. Scholarship award criteria included maintaining a minimum 3.5 grade-point average in high school or during the previous 12 months as a college undergraduate. Applicants had to demonstrate active involvement in community service and also describe in an essay why they need the scholarship and their goals for their education.

“These are all exceptional students and contributors to their communities. We are very pleased to award them a scholarship,” Doug Schneider, chairman of the Credit Union of Colorado Foundation, said in a written statement. “They exhibit a commitment to their education and to building a better future for all of us.”
