COMMERCE CITY — Two recent high school graduates will be headed to college this fall with some financial assistance courtesy of Commerce City’s Quality Community Foundation.
Abigail Jimenez and Navdeep Singh were slated to be recognized (after press time) at the June 2 City Council meeting as the 2014 recipients of the QCF scholarships.
Each year the Quality Community Foundation awards a $4,000 scholarship to qualified Commerce City residents over a four-year period to assist with costs in obtaining a higher education degree.
Applicants must be Commerce City residents, must have been accepted to a college, university or vocational school in Colorado, reflect a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher, submit an application including a concise essay on their proposed field of study, educational goals, career goals, and how their education will benefit the community.
Jimenez, who recently graduated from Adams City High School with a 4.37 GPA, plans to study biology at Metropolitan State University in hopes of becoming an oral surgeon.
Singh, who graduated from Prairie View High School with a 4.38 GPA, plans to study integrative physiology at the University of Colorado at Boulder in hopes of becoming a pediatrician.
