On Wednesday, July 16, several members of this year’s Grand Valley High School graduating class were honored at the Clough Fellows Reception held at Colorado Mountain College’s West Garfield Campus. The theme of the reception was “A Chance to Succeed.” Each of the honored students was selected after submitting a written application and having a personal interview with the scholarship committee.

The scholarships are funded through a generous donation from Genevieve Clough and supported through the Western Colorado Community Foundation. Mrs. Clough gave a few words of encouragement and inspiration to the recipients before they were presented with a certificate and portfolio. Students receiving scholarships and becoming the first Clough Fellows are: Hope Dees, Tearza Mannaeh, Dani Gonzales, John Gulliksen, Amanda Gunter, Tyler Harris, Cody Keeling, Sherry Mlakar, Danielle Noble, Laren Schubert, and Lyndsey Tonder. Congratulations to these students and thank you, Genevieve.
