Three Powell students receive prestigious scholarship to UW

Posted

A trio of Powell High School seniors have been selected to receive the 2021 Trustees’ Scholars Award, the University of Wyoming’s top academic scholarship.

Clayton Brown, Jenna Merritt and Elsie Spomer are among 101 outstanding students from across Wyoming who were selected for the honor.

The premier scholarship for Wyoming resident high school seniors covers actual credit hours taken as well as room and board costs for eight semesters at UW, starting with the fall 2021 semester. Students from 34 high schools were chosen.

Recipients are evaluated on their academic excellence (high school grade-point average, ACT/SAT scores and curriculum rigor). Individual interviews were held as well. For this year’s award winners, the average GPA is 3.97, and the average ACT score is 32.

To retain the scholarship all four years at UW, students must maintain full-time continuous enrollment (at least 12 semester hours) during the fall and spring semesters each year, along with a 3.0 cumulative GPA.

Other local recipients of the 2021 scholarship include:

• Brylee Allred, Summer Holeman and Solomon Stewart of Cody High School;

• Taylor Despain of Rocky Mountain High School; and

  Vivian Allen, Melissa Bullinger and Kristen Wiles of Burlington High School.
