Skico presents scholarships
The Aspen Skiing Co. presented four area high school students with college scholarships for $5,000 Thursday.
Receiving money from the Skico’s three-year-old scholarship program were Brian Phillips of Aspen High School; Sarah Bogner of Basalt High School; Elizabeth Cretti of Carbondale’s Roaring Fork High School; and Trey Haney of Glenwood Springs High School.
Aspen native Phillips was a member of the National Honor Society and an honor roll student at AHS. Last year, he traveled to Costa Rica to help build a cafeteria. He believes volunteerism is reflected in giving selflessly of your time and devotion.
Phillips is an outdoor enthusiast. This fall, he will attend Montana State University in Bozeman as a science major.
Bogner knows exactly what she wants to do – follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a social worker to help out the local community. She was a peer counselor at Basalt High, ski raced and played soccer all four years of high school and still found time to be team captain of a recreation league.
Cretti was student council president at Roaring Fork High. During high school she received many accolades, including Outstanding Junior Girl, Carbondale student of the month and Norwest student of the month.
Haney was busy at Glenwood Springs High School where he played golf and baseball all four years, picked up football his senior year, was in the school band and maintained his honor roll status throughout.
