Posted on: Tue, 03/19/2019 - 16:44

Congratulations to Englewood High School senior Fernando Urrutia for being selected as a Boettcher Foundation Scholar, one of the highest academic honors in Colorado!

“I found out over the weekend, on Saturday," Urrutia said. "I kept checking the mail every day and that day, I checked in the morning around 7 a.m. Around 5 p.m., my mom said, 'hey, you should go check again.' I did, and it was inside the envelope. I didn’t wait until I got back home. I opened it right there, and I saw a big envelope inside, and that’s when I saw the letter that I had the scholarship.”
