GR student receives scholarship


The Kaiser Foundation announced it has awarded 10 $4,000 scholarships to outstanding graduation seniors of Wyoming high schools.

Green River High School student Jennifer Rocha is one of the 10 who will receive the scholarship.

These scholarships may be renewed for an additional four years for those students who continue to meet academic standards.

The recipients were selected on the basis of merit with special consideration given to their academic, extracurricular and community-service achievements. Financial need was strongly considered.

To date the foundation has awarded over $1.56 million in scholarships to students representing high schools throughout Wyoming. The Kaiser Foundation was established in 1986 by Curt Kaiser, founder of Kaiser and Company.

“By supporting Wyoming’s best and brightest students, the Kaiser Foundation recognizes that our youth will determine the future of our state and nation,” Curt Kaiser said.

The foundation was created to promote higher education standards by providing educational opportunities for exemplary students. For 32 consecutive years, the Kaiser Foundation has awarded scholarships to deserving Wyoming high school graduates.
