Boettcher Foundation honors five DCSD teachers

Educators are chosen by students receiving prestigious scholarships

Posted

For more than 60 years, Denver-based Boettcher Foundation has awarded exceptional high school students with full-ride scholarships to any four-year school in Colorado. This year, 42 of 1,600 applicants were selected. Five were from Douglas County School District.

The foundation also recognizes those who influence a student’s success: teachers.

At an Aug. 11 ceremony at Denver Botanic Gardens, each DCSD student honored a teacher who played a significant role in his or her education. Boettcher Foundation awarded each teacher a $1,000 grant to be used for an educational program or project.

“Colorado’s kids deserve teachers who are driven and passionate about the work they do,” Tiffany Anderson, Boettcher Foundation’s scholarship program director, said in a media release. “ ... we are proud to recognize them for helping our scholars get to where they are today.”
