APEX class of 2020 senior Jasey Chanders has been selected as a Boettcher Scholar and received the prestigious Boettcher 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 apply for the scholarship annually.
The scholarship Jasey has been awarded includes virtually all expenses to attend the Colorado school of her choice: full tuition, fees, a book allowance and an annual stipend for living expenses. The award is granted for eight semesters or 12 quarters 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 Programs. “Jasey really stood out with her commitment both in and out of the classroom. We’re proud to have her representing the Boettcher community, and we look forward to seeing how her future leadership positively impacts the State of Colorado.”
Additionally, Jasey has selected Mrs. Shelly Cox-Robie to honor with the Teacher Recognition Award. The Teacher Recognition Awards Program was established by the trustees of the Boettcher Foundation in 1992 to provide an opportunity for Boettcher Scholars to extend their gratitude to the teachers who have dedicated themselves to providing Colorado students with an outstanding education. Each 2020 Boettcher Scholarship finalist was asked to identify one teacher who impacted their lives and made significant contributions to their growth and education. In addition to a plaque, the recipients of the Teacher Recognition Award will receive a $500 grant, which they may use toward an educational program, professional development, or project to benefit students at our school.
Our 2020 Boettcher Scholarship finalist Jasey Chanders chose Mrs. Shelly Cox-Robie as their teacher nominee in recognition of Mrs. Cox-Robie’s passion for the profession and dedication to their students. Mrs. Cox-Robie, this award is the Boettcher Foundation’s way of telling you that they appreciate your commitment to your students and to our community. We are incredibly proud to have you as a teacher in our school community and thank you for inspiring not only your students but also setting a standard of excellence for others in your profession.
Congratulations Jasey. We are SO proud of you!
