Comcast awarded $75,000 in scholarships to 30 college-bound students across Colorado, including students from the metro Denver area, as part of the Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program.

The Leaders and Achievers program recognizes high school seniors for their character, integrity, academic achievement and a commitment to community service, giving these young people additional opportunities to prepare for the future and to engage in their communities.

Each student receives a one-time, $2,500 scholarship to be used toward undergraduate education-related expenses. Since 2001, the program has awarded more than $33 million to nearly 30,000 high school seniors across the country.

Students from schools in the Colorado Community Media coverage area who received scholarships are:

Emnet Yibelthal, Smoky Hill High School; Nana Fordwuo, Regis Jesuit High School; Corinne Neustadter, Legacy High School; Tatum Kohler, Holy Family High School; Jamie Wickersheim, Adams City High School; Ayanle Nur, DSST: Green Valley Ranch High School; Cecilia Pablo, George Washington High School; Erika Medina, Arrupe Jesuit High School; Linh Tran, Denver South High School; Mia Gugino, Denver Jewish Day School; Nina Dolatshahi, Highlands Ranch High School; Ruthie Angevine, Colorado Academy Upper; Brock Mullen, Chaparral High School; Harnoor Hundal, York International School; Alec Drosu, Summit Academy; Sangati Shah, Standley Lake High School

The Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Program provides scholarships to students who strive to achieve their full potential, who are catalysts for positive change in their communities, who are involved in their schools, and who serve as models for their fellow students. The philosophy behind the program is to give young people every opportunity to prepare for the future and to engage them in their communities. The program also demonstrates the importance and value of civic involvement, especially by the business community.
