BEF Grants $10,000 in College Scholarships
In an upbeat and heartwarming ceremony at Aspen’s Wheeler Opera House, Basalt Education Foundation presented the first annual Basalt Education Foundation Scholarship Awards totaling $10,000 to eight very deserving graduating BHS seniors. We were delighted to take part in the BHS Scholarship Awards Night, and we look forward to continuing to make a difference in grads’ lives for many years to come.
The following members of the Class of 2015 received scholarships:
- Jamie Briscoe
- Tania Gallegos
- Mackenzie Heard
- Becca Maniscalchi
- Nikole Simecek
- Oswaldo Sosa
- Zach Walsh
- Devin Williams
These scholarships are thanks to some very generous donors and sponsors of the Taste of Basalt, who see value in helping to launch BHS students off to college. Our goal this year is to raise even more funds to award still more scholarship money to lessen the financial burden of college on Basalt students and their families.
