Letter: Thrift Shop of Aspen scholarship recipients

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 six candidates from the dozens of highly qualified and worthy applicants. This year we are proud to congratulate the following students:

Aspen High School

Erik Phillips — California Polytechnic University

Anthony Carreno — University of San Francisco

Nicole Zell — Culinary Institute of America

In honor of our 65 birthday, an additional scholarship for a female student from Aspen High School, who particularly embodies the spirit of community service and volunteerism was chosen:

Sage Lucero — Savannah College of Art and Design

Basalt High School

Berta Rivera — University of Colorado Boulder

Roaring Fork High School

Alexa Maes — University of Denver

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.
