Western Rockies is pleased to announce that our Scholarship Committee has selected two applicants for our $1,000 2017-2018 college scholarship. There were many impressive applicants, but the committee recognized two that stood out due to their ability to overcome obstacles in pursuit of their goals. Cody Littlefield and Gabrielle Donalson will each receive $1,000 scholarship towards their education.

"I am extremely grateful to Western Rockies FCU for this scholarship opportunity,” said Cody Littlefield. “This money will help me pay for my books and tuition so I can earn my degree." Cody maintains a full-time job while also attending classes full-time. He has a been member of the Hotchkiss FFA, Mountain View Bible Church Youth Group, and Hotchkiss basketball team. Cody’s dreams for the future include pursuing a career as an Electrical Line Worker.

When told that she had won the scholarship award, Gabrielle Donalson of Colorado Mesa University updated us on her situation, saying, “I just finished my last final of the spring 2016 semester and I was worried about how I would be able to afford next year’s classes. Then I heard from the Western Rockies Scholarship Committee that I won the scholarship. I registered for fall semester that day. Thank you Western Rockies FCU!” 

Gabrielle is earning her degree in chemistry with a minor in history. She is an active member of the Gamma Phi Beta Sorority, as well as the Awanas Club. She works for CMU as a structured researcher for Organic Synthesis under Nitrogen. 

Western Rockies is proud to be able to help our members get closer to reaching their education goals! Western Rockies encourages all of our degree seeking members to apply and reapply next year.
