Firestone Board Recognizes Scholarship Recipients
During the Board of Trustees meeting on Wednesday, May 12, 2021, the Board of Trustees and Mrs. Betty Heath recognized two students from Firestone for the George E. Heath Community Scholarship. Both students will receive $1,000 to go towards educational expenses this fall.
In its inaugural year, The George E. Heath Community Scholarship was created in honor of former Trustee George Heath, a passionate advocate of education and community service. He served the Town of Firestone in varying capacities for over 20 years.
Both students, graduating in a few weeks from Frederick High School, have demonstrated their excellence in academics, showed involvement in many extracurricular activities, and even had time to complete community service hours.
The two scholarship recipients are as follows:
Ethan Ahlstrom who will be attending Brigham Young University this fall, studying Mechanical Engineering with the career aspirations of owning his own business.
John Klingensmith who will be attending Front Range Community College this fall studying forensics, with career aspirations of being a forensic autopsy technician.
Congratulations to Ethan and John, and to all of the graduating students who live in Firestone!
