Western Dairy and CHSAA offering scholarship for high school seniors

THORNTON – Western Dairy is proud to present a new scholarship opportunity through our partnership with CHSAA – the Western Dairy Association Colorado Spirit Award.

Student participants who would like to be considered for the Western Dairy Association Colorado Spirit Award should participate in a CHSAA sanctioned activity, have a 2.5 or higher GPA and participate in community service projects. Extra consideration will be given to students who center their community service around food banks and getting more dairy into the hands of those who need it most.

“We are so excited to see what kind of impact these student leaders have on their local communities,” said Jaclyn Alkhatib, Director of Nutrition, Health and Wellness for Western Dairy, “addressing hunger in the community is a priority for our dairy farm families so I know they’ll be proud to award these scholarships.”

Four student participants will be selected for scholarship awards. Three students will receive $1,000 scholarships and one overall All-Star will receive a $2,500 scholarship.

Nomination packets are due to the CHSAA by December 18, 2016 (click here for the nomination form).
