Hero Awards highlight resilient Jeffco students, innovative teachers

Posted

The Jeffco Schools Foundation honored four students, three teachers and a principal Nov. 13 for their stand-out work. Recipients attend or work at various schools in the district, but all share a common trait — their dedication, enthusiasm and fortitude make them heroes.

Those honored were students Rachael Black, of Arvada West High School; Brenda Calderon, of Jefferson Jr./Sr. High School; Jayson Garcia, of Sobesky Academy; and Christopher Jones, of Two Roads Charter School.

The honored teachers were Barbara Weisiger, of Coronado Elementary School; Alisha Lindsey, of Bradford K-8 North; and Jennifer Marquez, of Wheat Ridge High School.

Teachers and administrators nominate students who have caught their attention for facing challenges from battling a serious illness to dealing with homelessness.

Student awardees received scholarships to Red Rocks Community College and are eligible for additional scholarships that will fund school-related expenses like books, transportation and fees.

Teachers are selected for their innovative work and dedication to the profession, according to the foundation.
