Two SSHS Seniors Selected as Semifinalists for Boettcher Scholarship

Steamboat Springs, Colo. - Two seniors at Steamboat Springs High School,  Benjamin (Grey) Barbier and Noah Brinkman, have been selected as semifinalists for the prestigious Boettcher Scholarship.  

The Boettcher Scholarship is a highly competitive program that provides full tuition, fees, and a living stipend for recipients to attend any Colorado college or university. As semifinalists, Grey and Noah have already distinguished themselves as two of the state’s top students.

“Grey and Noah have demonstrated exceptional dedication to their studies, consistently achieve high academic honors, actively engage in our community, and make a positive impact on their peers,” said Jay Hamric, Principal of SSHS. “Their dedication to making a difference in the lives of others aligns perfectly with the Boettcher Scholarship's emphasis on service and leadership.”

The Boettcher Foundation is known for its commitment to recognizing outstanding students with a nearly 90-year-old family-initiated philanthropy with a mission to give back to Colorado. The Boettcher Scholarship was established in 1952 and has invested more than $110 million in undergraduate scholarships for Colorado’s most impressive young scholars.   

“We are so proud of Grey and Noah for their hard work, dedication to academics, and for being a positive force in our school community,” said Misty Curtin-Sellden, a counselor at SSHS. 

Semifinalists will be notified in February if they become finalists. Finalists are interviewed in March and scholarship winners are announced in early May.
