Each year, the Better Business Bureau of Southern Colorado (BBB of SC) awards two $2,500 scholarships to high school seniors that reside in the 25 counties it services in southern Colorado. The application process includes an essay on an ethical scenario. This year, the BBB of SC reviewed more than 40 applications to select the winners, Daniel Myers (Air Academy High School) and Lauren Rice (Discovery Canyon Campus). Myers and Rice will be attending in-state universities this fall.

“The creativity and drive of these young people is tremendous,” said Matt Barrett, CEO of the BBB of SC. “We are very proud of their commitment to ethics and this community.”

The scholarship recipients will be honored at the BBB of SC’s A Night of Excellence with Your BBB Award Gala on Thursday, September 26, 2013 at Hotel Eleganté Conference and Event Center in Colorado Springs. The BBB of SC will also present the BBB Excellence Awards - Customer Service and BBB Excellence Awards - GE Johnson Ethics.
