Greeley Stampede Foundation receives record number of scholarship applicants

The 2017 recipients were difficult to choose from with a record breaking number of applications. With over 100 applicants this year, the Greeley Stampede Foundation was humbled to see the amount of hard work and dedication that these students represent.

"These students deserve recognition for their hard work," said Bob Hinderaker, scholarship chairman of the Greeley Stampede Foundation. "To show our appreciation and support, the students will be recognized through several Stampede events including the Stampede Kickoff Luncheon, Big Buckle Ball and the June 28 rodeo."

Applications were submitted from across Weld County, creating a very competitive selection process. Recipients were selected based on their outstanding academic results, school involvement, leadership in the community and plans to further their education. The 2017 selected scholarship recipients represent 13 Weld County High Schools. The Foundation Board is proud to help these community minded students build a bright future for themselves and, as a result, our community.

Over $50,000 will be awarded to the students for the 2017-2018 academic year. The recipients include:
