Five students in Denver City Council District 9 will receive $5,000 each toward college expenses as part of the 2018 District 9 Scholarship program. City Council President Albus Brooks, in partnership with the Picerne Family Foundation, announceed the winners of the new scholarship program in a press conference on Friday, May 18.

In March, District 9 high schools were asked to distribute application information to graduating seniors. Students were required to submit an application and an essay for consideration. Participants were notified of the outcome.

“A city’s greatness can be measured by its ability to cultivate talent. Denver has always done a great job recruiting talent, but we have simply not done enough to empower the future generation of leaders that is already here,” President Brooks said.

To begin the process of empowering the future generation, five students from different high schools (Bruce Randolph High School, East High School and Manual High School, DSST Cole) received a $5,000 scholarship.

“This scholarship directly impacts the future of five emerging leaders from District 9, serving as a symbolic challenge for others in the city to do more to invest in our young people,” President Brooks said.
