Letter: Grateful for community support

As a senior at Aspen High School, I wanted to take a moment to thank the Aspen community for its continued unconditional support of Aspen High School students. On April 21, my classmates and I were recipients of more than $380,000 worth of continuing-education scholarships.

The Aspen High School Class of 2016 is competitive, driven, charismatic and humble. All of our educational pursuits would not be possible without the generous support from scholarship sponsors within the Aspen community and Roaring Fork Valley. Thank you for enabling us to continue our dreams and our academic endeavors.

The community’s generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to my hometown, but also my new home at The Ohio State University. I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goal just as Aspen has helped me.

We invite you to our commencement ceremony at 1 p.m. on June 4 at the Benedict Music Tent.
