2018 Y.E.S. Scholarship Winners
Karyn Forbes, Hayden High School
As a 2018 scholarship recipient, I am not only grateful but also honored. I have been involved in Routt County through various organizations such as Routt County 4-H, holding both club and district leadership positions, and Routt County Fair Royalty where I served two years before becoming the 2016 Queen. Before graduation on May, 20, I was the Hayden High School Student Council Vice President while being involved in NHS, Band, Wrestling, and Volleyball. Beginning on August 27, 2018, I will be attending Laramie County Community College in Cheyenne, Wyoming to study Agricultural Business. My goal is to give back to such an amazing community that has supported all my endeavors throughout the years. I wish to remind everyone to “Stay Golden”.

Amanda Perlman, Steamboat Springs High School
While at Steamboat Springs High School I was leader of Interact and National Honor Society, which inspired me to begin a career in which I will advocate for others. I have already been involved politically by participating in the Women’s Marches and working with other students to lead protests against school violence. Additionally, I was the first girl to play on the SSHS boys’ golf team which led to the formation of a girl’s team that I captained for two years. The sunny weather in Tucson, Arizona will be perfect for golfing, I plan on playing golf recreationally in college as well as getting involved in on-campus clubs and organizations. Currently, I work at Cantafio Law as an intern to learn more about my future career paths. I would also like to thank all those who generously awarded me the Y.E.S. scholarship!

Mattie Rossi, Soroco High School
I competed for Soroco’s athletic programs all four years, in volleyball, basketball, cross country and track & field for the Rams. In addition to athletics, I am an active member of Soroco’s Student Council and NHS Chapter. I am also a member of the Soroco FFA Chapter and Flat Top 4-H Club. Through 4-H and FFA organizations I raise and sell market swine. I plan to study agricultural business and management. After being raised in a community that is driven by an agricultural background, I have found a passion for agriculture, and would like to educate myself in such a necessary industry. I will also be competing on the FHSU women's track and field program. I am excited to venture into a new chapter of my life and am thankful for the Y.E.S scholarship and generous donors for helping me achieve my post-secondary educational goals.
