May 3, 2013 - Staff
The Kaiser Foundation has awarded $3,000 scholarships to 15 seniors graduating from Wyoming high schools, including three from Fremont County.
Dubois High School senior Cody Flynn, Lander Valley High School senior Aspen B. Hemingway and Shoshoni High School senior Joshua W. Thoren were among the recipients.
The scholarships may be renewed for an additional four years for those students who continue to meet academic standards. The recipients were selected on the basis of merit with special consideration given to their academic, extracurricular and community service achievements. Financial need was strongly considered.
To date, the Foundation has awarded roughly $958,000 in scholarships to students representing high schools throughout Wyoming. The Kaiser Foundation was established in 1986 by Curt Kaiser, founder of Kaiser and Company.
The Foundation was created to promote higher educational standards by providing educational opportunities for exemplary students.
