Outstanding seniors honored at Administrator’s Scholarship Awards Ceremony
PARKER – Each year, Douglas County School District’s (DCSD) Administrator’s Scholarship Program honors seniors from across the district. Following a competitive nomination process, eleven outstanding students were honored last week at the DCSD Administrator’s Scholars Awards ceremony.
Many of these students are among the top performers at their schools, several overcoming great obstacles.

One of the recipients, Shea Davis, is also a recent Missy Martin Scholarship recipient. He will be attending Arapahoe Community College.
“I see a bright future for myself,” said Grayson Anderson, who has overcome a drug addiction following his mother’s passing from breast cancer.
The Administrator’s Scholarship Program has been awarding scholarships to DCSD students for nearly 30 years. The program has distributed more than 180 scholarships and $150,000 in funds over those years.
“The scholarship and financial aid I receive is going to help me go into a medical career, which will eventually let me help more people,” said Cayla Mackey.
Each of the scholarship recipients will receive $1000 to aid with their college expenses.
The awards are presented at the district’s annual PK12 meeting, which takes place at the Parker Arts, Culture and Events center. The meeting ended with a celebration of the 36 year career of Castle View High School principal, Dr. Jim Calhoun, who is retiring at the end of the school year.
