The Comcast Foundation today announced the 2012-13 recipients of its annual Leaders and Achievers® Scholarship Program awards in Colorado.

A total of $75,000 in scholarship funding will be awarded to 57 Colorado students, with 55 students receiving $1,000 each, and two - Daniel Besmer of Green Mountain High School in Lakewood and Nina De La Rosa of Rangeview High School in Aurora – each receiving $10,000.

“Through this scholarship program, Comcast is proud to salute talented high school seniors who are leaders in their communities,” said Rich Jennings, Vice President of Comcast’s Mile High Region. “For nearly 50 years, Comcast has been committed to making a positive impact on our local communities and helping them ‘Dream Big’ by providing innovative technology, encouraging volunteerism, providing financial support and partnering with great community organizations. We hope these scholarships will help these students reach their full potential and continue to dream big.”

The Comcast Leaders and Achievers® Scholarship Program provides $1,000 or $10,000 scholarships to students who strive to achieve their potential, are catalysts for positive change in their communities, 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 engage them in their communities. The program also demonstrates the importance of civic involvement, and the value placed on civic involvement by the business community.
