The Frank E. and Salome B. Smith Scholarship Fund was established in 1976. Since that time we have been able to assist over 100 young people continue their education. The duties of your scholarship board are to review and approve applications for these funds, monitor the educational and personal progress of our young adults, and assist them in any way we can in their pursuit of higher education.
We also send “our” students care packages near the end of the fall and spring semesters to help them get through the last few weeks of studies and finals. These care packages are usually filled with hot chocolate, tea, candy, power bars and other assorted munchies, and most importantly, with our best wishes for their success.
We love working with these young people, seeing them grow as individuals through their college years.
We have an amazing group of young people in our scholarship group for the 2019 – 2020 academic year:
Full time students: Cassidy Arndt (Ft. Lewis College), Molly Arndt (Middlebury College), Josh Elkington (Colorado State University), Anna Stellick (Pikes Peak Community College), Stephanie Winters (University of Northern Colorado), and Roxy Witham (C U Boulder)
Part-time students: Matt Hinkley (Pikes Peak Community College) and Abby Steen (Colorado State University – Pueblo)
Nick Brennan graduated last spring from C U Boulder! Congrats, Nick!
Merkin Karr, one of our recent graduates, has entered a Master of Fine Arts program at Florida Atlantic University this fall and was granted a Congregational Church Educational Assistance grant to help her in this endeavor.
