Arvada/Wheat Ridge Service Organizations Recognizes Teens for Overcoming Adversity

Students receive scholarships from Red Rocks Community College

 

LAKEWOOD, CO – More than seventy teenagers who have overcome various forms of adversity were recognized by the Arvada Wheat Ridge Service Ambassadors for Youth (AWRSAY) at a ceremony last month at Arvada High School.  Scholarship awards to Red Rocks Community College were presented by local elected officials such as senators, representatives, mayors, council members, and school board members, plus principals from area middle and high schools.  In addition, Congressman Ed Perlmutter has arranged to have the names of the youth printed in the Congressional Record. The program was narrated by Ron Sloan, Director of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

“Seeing the proud expressions on the faces of these young people as they were publically recognized for their achievements caused a swell in all of our throats,” said Duane Youse, one of the AWRSAY Founders. “The members feel a sense of accomplishment for giving these teens a life-long memory to build upon.”

AWRSAY is a coalition of service clubs, businesses, the cities of Arvada and Wheat Ridge, the Jefferson County School District, and Red Rocks Community College.  The mission of the program, which is in its 13th year, is to provide ongoing recognition, as well as educational and leadership opportunities for Arvada and Wheat Ridge teens who have overcome adversity.  AWRSAY aims to raise the self-esteem of middle and high school teens, develop opportunities through creative collaborations for these teens to build leadership skills, and to reward them through scholarships and other lifelong learning options.
