$10,000 ExtraordinAIRy Scholarships for 5 High School Graduates: July 2016

July 07, 2016

ExtraordinAIRy Treasures Scholarships are based on who a graduate is at heart. They honor graduates who are ExtraordinAIRy Treasures to our future. They are individuals who inspire others to greatness whether it be through leading by example, overcoming challenges, serving others, being determined to better themselves or living a life of love and compassion.

We selected the following five outstanding students who are ExtraordinAIRy Treasures to the Denver community and presented each with a plaque and $2,000 on July, 19th at our office in Centennial, CO.

  • Cody LeBlanc a 2016 graduate of Fort Lupton High School
  • Nicole Steiner, a 2016 graduate of Legend High School
  • William Smith, a 2016 graduate of Standley Lake High School
  • Jorge Porras, a 2016 graduate of Heritage High School
  • Olivia Koontz, a 2016 graduate of Standley Lake High School 

Here’s the interesting part, our five chosen recipients did not apply for the scholarship; they were each nominated for consideration by parents, teachers, guidance counselors, coaches, pastors and friends. These nominators wrote essays about why the students were ExtraordinAIRy Treasures to our future.

We were blown away by the stories of each of these individuals. From overcoming challenges to volunteering hundreds of hours and dedicating their time, effort and money to local charity efforts, they are true inspirations who are making a difference in the world. Meeting these individuals and their families in person solidified how impressive these students truly are, and we know as they head off to college and the next chapter of their lives, they will continue to impact the lives of those around them. 

It is our true joy and honor to give back to the community we serve. We look forward to when we will begin the enrollment for 2017 ExtraordinAIRy Treasures nominations
