Boulder Valley Credit Union Awards $10,000 in College Scholarships to Five High School Seniors

BOULDER, CO – May 28, 2014 – Boulder Valley Credit Union and its Board of Directors are proud to announce that five accomplished high school seniors were awarded College Scholarships for the 2014-2015 academic year of $2,000 each.

Congratulations to Leah Perletz of Boulder High School, Genevieve Gregorich of Boulder High School, Amy Karlzen of Monarch High School, Hadley Dorn of Fairview High School, and Hillary Lutkus of Fairview High School. Recipients were selected based on their exemplary academic achievement, participation in extracurricular activities, their passion for continuing education, and their commitment to community involvement.

Boulder Valley Credit Union initiated its Annual College Scholarship program to recognize exceptional high school graduates. “We were particularly impressed with the quality and number of applications we received this year,” stated Jason Bauer, VP Marketing and E-Commerce with Boulder Valley Credit Union.  “We believe what students learn inside and outside of the classroom are equally important. Therefore, in addition to reviewing their academic achievements, we also judged applications based on the demonstration of a diverse blend of volunteer efforts, extracurricular activities, and work experience.”

Boulder Valley Credit Union was pleased to see the accomplishments of so many applicants. Each scholarship winner was merited for their hard work, and their scholarship awards are a symbol of their commitment to continued education. BVCU will continue to build brighter futures through education in our communities.
