Telluride Rotary is pleased to award three scholarships to graduating seniors for 2021. The club’s special Service Above Self award for outstanding community service, and a $2000 academic scholarship, went to Telluride High School senior Rowen Kelly Warren (pictured here). Rowen has demonstrated exceptional service by leveraging his expertise and passion for radio communication and emergency response to assist several regional agencies with wildfire response, search and rescue, and he has also volunteered for the sheriff’s office and medical center. He’s an athlete, actor and high-achieving student. Telluride Rotary is proud to support his forthcoming education at CU Boulder’s College of Engineering.
Telluride Rotary also is pleased to award two additional scholarships to hard-working and high-achieving students: a $1000 vocational education scholarship to Telluride High School senior Juan Pablo Flores, who will advance his skills in welding at Western Colorado Community College; and the $500 John Micetic Memorial Athletic Scholarship goes to Norwood High School student Jenna Baugh for her outstanding athletic achievements.
Our club seeks to expand its scholarship fund in the coming year from $3500 to at least $10,000, to offer more support to talented and deserving high school seniors in our county. Please support this effort by making a tax-deductible donation by using the “Donate” tab on the menu above.
Many thanks to the Scholarship Committee for their time reading applications and choosing these three well-qualified recipients. The committee is chaired by Doug Tueller and includes: Lynne Beck, Marilyn Branch, Sarah Holbrooke, Judi Kiernan and Roger Wickham.
