Four DCSD Graduates Named Boettcher Scholars

Nearly 1,500 Colorado students applied for the prestigious Boettcher Foundation Scholarship this year, with 42 being named recipients. Of those, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) is proudly home to four recipients.

Congratulations to these outstanding DCSD scholars and Boettcher recipients:

Megan Koch from Highlands Ranch High School will attend Colorado College

Océane Mauffrey from ThunderRidge High School is also heading to Colorado College

Shreya Nallapati from Rock Canyon High School will attend the University of Denver

Andres Pulido from Highlands Ranch High School has his sights set on the University of Denver    

Boettcher scholars receive a four-year scholarship that includes virtually all expenses to attend the Colorado school of their choice – full tuition, fees, a book allowance and an annual stipend for living expenses.

“As Boettcher Scholars, these dynamic thinkers and leaders have committed to attending Colorado universities where they will continue using their talents to elevate our communities right here at home,” said Katie Kramer, president and CEO of the Boettcher Foundation.

Scholars are selected based on academics, service, leadership and character.

When it comes to mental health services, communities traditionally focus on supporting kids as needs arise. This work is crucial for the safety of our students. Equally important, though, is prevention-based programming that can help, early on, prevent the social-emotional challenges our kids may be experiencing from escalating.

This year, more than 5,000 nominations were submitted. 188 Apple Representatives from schools and departments were then selected by the Foundation in January.
