Dear Colorado 500 Family,

 

I would first and foremost like to Thank-you all so much for awarding me with the Colorado 500 Scholarship. I can honestly say that it is going to make such a huge difference for me during these next four years of College. I greatly appreciate you for honoring me with this Award and I will not let you down.

 

I am currently working in Landscaping for the summer and can tell you every dollar I’m currently earning towards school comes with much sweat and blisters and long days in the sun. No complaints, since I like working, but this makes your Scholarship that much more appreciated!!

 

Thank-you for all you do for our Community and especially for all you do for all of us kids whom you’ve selected over the years for the Colorado 500. You make a huge impact in our lives and help make our dreams possible. I hope to make it to one of your two events scheduled for August, before I leave for Western. Time seems to be flying by. I move into my dorm on August 21st and school starts the following Monday. I'm excited and admittedly a little fearful, but I will give it my all to be successful. I’ve included my University information below as requested and my senior pictures are attached. I am eager to begin this new adventure and hope to make everyone who has helped me along the way very proud!

 

I'm very grateful to all of you and especially the Dallenbach Family, Ms. Lohman and the Interview Council that made this experience so exciting and rewarding!!.  It was a pleasure meeting all of you and I feel honored to be considered part of the Colorado 500 Family! I will keep in contact with you while I start this new journey in my life. Thank-you!!

 

Best Regards,

Dearest Colorado 500 Family,

 

Greetings to all! I hope this letter finds you all doing well, and enjoying your summer! My name is Lyndi Peterson. I was a graduate and Colorado 500 Scholarship recipient in the year 2000. With the scholarship money that I was awarded through the graciousness of the donors in the Colorado 500 Organization, I was able to attend the University of Northern Colorado and graduated with my BA in Elementary Education in 2004.

 

I have been working in the field of education for the past 15 years now. Throughout this time I have went on to earn an MA in Instruction and Curriculum with an emphasis in Reading from Grand Canyon University, I am a certified Dyslexia Practitioner, and most recently obtained my Principal Certification through Denver University. In my career, I have been a classroom teacher in grades 1-5, a Reading Specialist, and Instructional Coach for teachers in grades K-5.

 

Most recently, I am proud to say that I have accepted the position as Assistant Principal at Eagleview Elementary (K-5) in the Adams 12 Five Star School District in Thornton, CO. It has been a long journey that ultimately would never had been possible without the incredible gift that I was given by this organization.

 

As I take time to reflect on my journey, I am reminded of the significance of saying thank you to those who have helped me along the way. So THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for your generosity. Thank you for the years and years of continuing to support and help Basalt High School graduates on their next journey. I have touched thousands of students, parents, and families life throughout my career and I will continue to do so as I embark on my next journey, that would ultimately not have been possible without you all!

 

With Deepest Gratitude,

Lyndi Peterson
