Graduates earn scholarship honors despite challenging year
As we near the end of another school year, we are reminded that getting to graduation is a true testament of not only the student’s hard work, but that of the families, teachers and community members who helped them gain the knowledge and skills necessary to pursue a future of their choosing.
This educational teamwork, yet again, proved a success with select graduates from district high schools earning scholarships. Below represents only a few of the honors from the Class of 2021 – congratulations to each and every graduate for their accomplishments during their time at Five Star Schools.
Four Five Star students named 2021 Daniels Scholars

The goal is not only to help Daniels Scholars succeed in college, but to ensure that they thrive beyond their years in college. Daniels Scholars are selected from the four-state region of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming for demonstrating exceptional character, leadership and a commitment to serving their community.
