Rangeview Senior Named Boettcher Scholar, Sets Sights on Aerospace Engineering

 

Congratulations to Rangeview High School senior Alexis Wall for earning the 2016 Boettcher Scholarship! She is one of only 42 students selected from more than 1,400 applicants.

The Boettcher Scholarship honors students who exhibit intense intellectual curiosity and passion for community service. It is one of Colorado’s most prestigious, merit-based scholarships, providing students a full ride to any in-state, four-year institution.

Goal 1 of the APS 2020: Shaping the Future strategic plan is to ensure that every student has a plan for his or her future, and Wall’s plan is very well etched out. She will pursue an aerospace engineering sciences degree through the University of Colorado Boulder’s Engineering Honors Program. She will also join Colorado’s top students in the CU-Boulder Presidents Leadership Class, one of the highest honors awarded to incoming students, and hopes to study abroad.

“I will have a full plate, but it’s going to be great and I’m really excited!” Wall exclaimed.

APS is proud of the ambitious 18-year-old who enjoyed a successful high school career. Wall will graduate as a Top Ten scholar who excelled in Advanced Placement and honors courses each year and earned numerous awards, including Rangeview’s Most Outstanding Leadership Student Overall. Instead of falling victim to “senioritis,” Wall juggled a heavy academic load with playing basketball, volunteering at the Denver Rescue Mission and interning at the Aerospace Data Facility-Colorado.

We wish her the best of luck in all of her future endeavors!
