RED Day cleans up Wheat Ridge

About 60 employees of Keller Williams associates volunteered their time on Thursday, May 16, to help spruce up the Mountain Vista Health Center.

The center, 4800 Tabor Street in Wheat Ridge, was chosen by the Keller Williams Avenues Realty office as part of the company’s “Give Where They Live” RED Day annual realty industry event. RED Day is short for “Renew, Energize and Donate.”

The volunteers, wearing red shirts, spent the day planting bushes, perennials and flowers on the retirement community campus. They also built flower beds.

“I think it is absolutely wonderful that Keller Williams thought of our campus to spend the day beautifying” said Evan Burlingame, who is president of the Vista Village resident council.

Boettcher scholars named

The competition was stiff, with more than 1,300 applicants from the state of Colorado all vying for a 2013 Boettcher Foundation scholarship.

Four Jeffco students rose to the top and are officially Boettcher scholarship winners:

• Arvada High School’s Maren Blair,

• Green Mountain High School’s Noha Kikhia,

• Lakewood High School’s Corey Baron,

• Wheat Ridge High School’s Liam McGrail.

The scholarship is good for any Colorado school of the student’s choice, and is essentially a full-ride to any 4-year institution in Colorado.

The goal of the Boettcher program is to keep the best students in Colorado by connecting them with outstanding opportunities offered by in-state institutions.

Now in its 61st year, the Boettcher Scholarship Program has awarded more than 2,300 scholarships, with more than $3 million paid out each year.
