their family’s name.  Reid Hall, Couy Miller, and Adam Parachini are this year’s recipients of the coveted Goetz Family Scholarship, which will cover all of their tuition and fees for the next academic year and provide stipends for books and living expenses.

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the Goetz Family Scholarship. “Over the past decade, we have awarded scholarships to thirteen MCC students,” said Kathy Goetz Hoskins. “The goal of the scholarship is to give back to the town that has been a place of success for our family, and to encourage future business in Morgan County.”

The scholarship is awarded through the MCC Foundation, and made possible by the generous financial support of John W. Goetz.  The selection committee includes Barbara (Goetz) Keenan, Alix Keenan, Gina Keenan-Heepke, and Kathy Goetz Hoskins.

“It is an honor to work with such an amazing family that truly cares about our students and the future of our community. The Goetz’s have truly made an impact and will continue to do so for years to come,” stated MCC Director of Development, Kari Linker.

Goetz scholarship recipients must be graduates from a Morgan County high school, have a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher, be working toward a degree in a business field, and demonstrate a desire to contribute to the economy in Northeast Colorado after graduation.

This year’s Goetz scholarship winners plan to pursue careers in their local communities.  Reid Hall (Brush) would like to open up his own auto repair shop, Couy Miller (Snyder) is already launching a real estate business, and Adam Parachini (Weldona) plans to work in agriculture.
