ALAMOSA — Elexia Wright, a senior at Alamosa 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.
“By selecting these promising young scholars, we honor the legacy of the Boettcher family while investing in the future of our state,” said Katie Kramer, president and CEO of the Boettcher Foundation. “The Boettcher Scholarship allows us to support and encourage these students to use their immense talents and give back within Colorado-both during college and beyond.”
Established in 1952, the Boettcher Scholarship program awards 42 scholarships each year and has established a network of more than 2,400 Boettcher Scholars.
The scholarship Elexia 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 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. “Nearly 1,500 of Colorado’s top students apply each year. Elexia really stood out with her accomplishments both in and out of the classroom. We’re proud to have her representing the Boettcher community.”
