LA JARA — Clint Middlemist, a senior at Centauri High School, has been selected as a recipient of the Boettcher Foundation Scholarship.
Boettcher Scholarships recognize Colorado’s top students by providing them with the funds to attain an excellent in-state education and access to additional opportunities to enrich their time in college and beyond. Boettcher Scholars become part of a network of alumni and community leaders who will support and engage them throughout their lifetimes.
“Boettcher Scholars are selected for their academic achievement, outstanding character and service and leadership in their schools and communities,” said Katie Kramer, president and CEO of the Boettcher Foundation. “The Boettcher Scholarship is an investment in our state’s future gamechangers. It not only recognizes their past achievements but also their future impact on the State of Colorado.”
Established in 1952, the Boettcher Scholarship program awards 42 scholarships each year and has established a network of more than 2,400 Boettcher Scholars. Approximately 1,500 graduating high school seniors annually apply for the scholarship.
The scholarship Clint has been awarded includes virtually all expenses to attend the Colorado school of his choice: full tuition, a book allowance and an annual stipend for living expenses. The award is granted for eight semesters at either a public or private four-year college or university in the state.
“The Boettcher Foundation’s scholarship selection process is competitive and rigorous,” said Tiffany Anderson, director of the scholarship program. “Clint really stood out with his commitment both in and out of the classroom. We’re proud to have him representing the Boettcher community, and we look forward to seeing how his future leadership positively impacts the State of Colorado.”
