Letter: Congratulations to Thrift Shop scholarship winners

Every spring the scholarship committee for The Thrift Shop of Aspen is honored to select recipients for college scholarships. It is a nearly impossible task to choose only five candidates from the dozens of highly qualified and worthy applicants. This year we are proud to congratulate the following students:

Aspen High School

Gabriela Magana, University of Colorado Boulder

TJ Kaiser, Ithaca College

Shayla DeYoung, Colorado State University

Basalt High School

Nathaly Rivera, University of Northern Colorado

Roaring Fork High School

Mario Alverde, Colorado Mountain College

We are able to continue to provide these generous awards due to the support of community members who donate gently used items and clothing and to the shoppers who purchase them.
