High School Scholarship Opportunity
In 2020, a Colorado high school student wrote an open letter to Governor Jared Polis, describing what he sees as a mental health crisis among his classmates.
"Just yesterday, December 10th, 2020 at approximately 10:50 a.m. my school counselors sat us down as a class. They had just received word that a student from the school just 15 miles to the West had taken his own life," Cyle Goble, a high school student in Otis, wrote. "I wish to god that I could say this was the first time we had to experience this, but it was not. This same tragedy had occurred just the week before."
The open letter, posted to Facebook, was shared thousands of times. Goble says it caught on not just because of the focus on mental health, but also because of its focus on (and) approach to Colorado's COVID-19 regulations. "These mandates and restrictions have isolated these students and us from friends and mental health resources," he wrote. (thedenverchannel.com)
Pueblo’s high school students spent Spring semester 2021 in workshops where they will learn their Story Recipe, mixed parts Inspiration, Motivation, & Activation. Some students will discover their voices for the first time, others will step into new ways of seeing their truth, their myth. Our community is teeming with an amazing diversity of young minds. Some are beautiful, others curious — all deserve our respect, compassion, and protection.
Contrary to popular belief, scholarships are not always dependent on GPA. They may be determined by many factors aside from grades.
