MONTE VISTA— The 2019 winner of the Monte Vista Rotary Club’s annual Dick Boyce Memorial Book Scholarship is presented to recent Sargent graduate Gracie Burkhart at a recent Club meeting.
Gracie is the daughter of Nate and Michelle Burkhart. She will be attending Adams State University in the fall. The scholarship consists of a $500 yearly amount for a student at ASU or Trinidad State with a potential of $2,000 awarded over a four-year attendance.
Initiated several years ago, the Dick Boyce Memorial Book Scholarship honors Boyce, himself a graduate of Sargent and long-time area farmer as well as a former Rotarian, by assisting young students in their academic endeavors.
Proudly making the presentation is current Rotary President David Hinkley. The club congratulates Gracie for her educational achievements and wishes her luck in the next stage of her education.
