Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park awards 2013 employee scholarship

Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park has awarded this year’s “Begin a New Adventure” Employee Scholarship to Henry “Hank” Gray, a 2013 graduate of Glenwood Springs High School. The employee scholarship, now in its fifth year, is granted based on merit, with consideration given for number of years of employment with the park and dedication to its mission: making people smile.

Gray has worked in the attractions department at the Adventure Park since the summer of 2011, serving as an attractions foreman in 2012. He plans to study construction management at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction this fall.

According to Nancy Heard, mountain operations manager for Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, “Hank has a wonderful presence with our guests and a mature work ethic. He’s a ‘can do’ type of person. When you see that Hank is working that day, you know that things will be taken care of.”

“We want to encourage all community members to participate. We hope to get a great cross section of all three communities and a nice mix of parents and community members.”
Chris Pearson
Re-2 school board president

Each year, to support its employees’ interests in furthering their education, the Adventure Park grants a $1,000 scholarship to a graduating high school senior in pursuit of post-high school education.
