Last weekend, four Hardrockers met to interview Joel Zucker Memorial
Scholarship candidates and to award scholarships. The recipients are all
from Silverton and surrounding Hardrock communities and I'm very proud that
we provide a way to help these kids get a higher education, a critical key
to success in our society. I'm also proud to report that this year's
applicants were the best we've ever seen.
We awarded seven scholarships totaling $8000. That is the largest amount
we have ever provided. Beginning in 1999, we've awarded $45,000 to 32
recipients. ALL that money was donated by Hardrock runners and family and
volunteers - real people - yourselves.
So, I want to thank each of you who donated to the JZMS fund this year and
in the past. Thanks for making a difference in the lives of seven students
this year and the 32 students over these past 15 years. And, of course,
I'm asking you to donate even more so that we can continue to support the
education of future scholars. Donations can be sent to:
Citizens State Bank
c/o Joel Zucker Memorial Scholarship
PO Box 6
Silverton, Colorado 81433
Contact Andi Kron (kron@...
), the real force behind the scholarship,
or me if you have any questions.
Thanks again for making the JZMS possible and for helping change the lives
of so many.
