    (Fremont County, WY) – The University of Wyoming announced the 101 outstanding high school seniors from across Wyoming have been selected to receive the 2021 Trustees’ Scholars Award, their top academic scholarship.

    Of those 101 selected, 3 are Fremont County students. Lander Valley High School seniors Kaycee Conder and Megan Haratyk were named recipients. Along with Rylan Koehn who attends Riverton High School.

    This premier scholarship is for Wyoming resident high school seniors. It covers actual credit hours taken as well as room and board costs for eight semesters at UW, starting with the fall 2021 semester.

    Recipients are evaluated on their academic excellence (high school grade-point average, ACT/SAT scores and curriculum rigor). Individual interviews were held as well. For this year’s award winners, the average GPA is 3.97, and the average ACT score is 32.

    To retain the scholarship for all four years at UW, students must maintain full-time continuous enrollment (at least 12 semester hours) during the fall and spring semesters each year, along with a 3.0 cumulative GPA.

    Students from 34 high schools were chosen. To view the entire list of recipients, click here.
