Boettcher foundation

More than 1,400 Colorado students applied for the prestigious Boettcher Foundation Scholarship this year, with 42 being named recipients. Of those, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) is proudly home to five recipients.

Congratulations to these outstanding DCSD scholars and Boettcher recipients:

Ansh Desai from Legend High School will attend the University of Colorado                         

 

Sydney Marchando of Rock Canyon High School is heading to the Colorado School of Mines

Jenna Trost from Castle View High School has her sights set on the University of Colorado

Ryan Vandersmith of Rock Canyon High School will attend the Colorado School of Mines

Niketna Vivek from Legend High School is heading to the University of Colorado                       

 

Boettcher scholars receive a four-year scholarship that includes virtually all expenses to attend the Colorado school of their choice – full tuition, fees, a book allowance and an annual stipend for living expenses.

“The Boettcher Scholarship aims to keep Colorado’s highest-potential students in the state by connecting them with the outstanding opportunities offered by our in-state institutions,” said Katie Kramer, CEO of the Boettcher Foundation.

Scholars are selected based on academics, service, leadership and character.

High school students across Douglas County, and many students in respective feeder schools, are once again learning that a little kindness can go a long way. Again this year, our high schools hosted Wish Weeks to make dreams come true for Make-A-Wish Foundation beneficiaries.

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education has named Thomas S. Tucker, Ph.D. as the sole finalist to lead our 68,000-student district as superintendent on a unanimous vote.
 

 

The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) has certified Sagewood Middle School as a Recognized ASCA National Model Program (RAMP). A prestigious honor, Sagewood is now the only middle school in the state of Colorado to have gained this certification. Schools must receive a near-perfect score on ASCA’s scoring rubric, which outlines guidelines for building and maintaining student achievement, behavior, counseling curriculum, school culture, and several other factors, in order to become certified.
