PTA Scholarship Award Goes To.........

Becky Johnson

I am pleased to announce that I will be attending Baylor University in the fall of 2016. Throughout my high school career, I have been actively involved at Dakota Ridge and in the community. I am an avid runner for the cross country and track teams and have had the privilege of being captain. I have also received varsity letters in both sports. Additionally, I am Treasurer of Dakota's National Honor Society and am taking higher level classes. My cumulative GPA is 4.5. I take pride in being a leader and hope to spread kindness throughout the community. I am a hard worker, positive, friendly, encouraging, and love to enjoy life. I have enjoyed playing the piano for 12 years, and have played in numerous competitions including the International Duo Piano Competition at The Broadmoor Hotel. I have wonderful memories of Powderhorn and am so grateful for all who made the beggining of my education so special. 

BriAnna Martin

"My name is BriAnna Martin and I attended Powderhorn from kindergarten through 6th grade. I also attended Summit Ridge and Dakota Ridge so the Powderhorn community is very close to my heart. At Dakota Ridge, I was a part of the IB program for all four years and I will graduate as a diploma candidate. The program was difficult and demanding, but through it I grew my love for biology and education. My hobbies include skiing, fishing, crochet, hiking, rock climbing, and classifying organisms into their respective phylum. In the fall I will be attending Colorado Christian University to major in biology and minor in outdoor leadership. From there I will attend graduate school to pursue a degree and career in secondary education so I can teach biology at the high school level. Throughout my time at Dakota Ridge, I have been on the gold honor roll for all semesters and earned a cumulative GPA of 4.9. I also cheered for DRHS varsity cheer all four years and received the Eagle Award as a senior. In addition, my junior and senior years I joined the women’s tennis team. I feel extremely honored and thankful to receive this scholarship and I am excited to put it to good use."
