Letter: Making the grade

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: Nicolas Wehse, University of Colorado at Boulder; Teresa Martin, Goucher College; Tristan Niskanen, University of Miami; and Shaw Hughes, Cal Poly.

Basalt High School: Esly Reyes, Regis College; and Savanah Cheatham, Colorado State University.

Roaring Fork High School: Beth Fawley, Milliken University.

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.
