Two Fountain-Fort Carson High School teachers were among a group of standout Colorado teachers recognized by The Boettcher Foundation for their impact and dedication to students.

The two instructors are Music teacher Josh Race and Science teacher Tobin Chandler.

As part of the Boettcher Scholarship program, which provides Colorado's most talented students with scholarships to attend a Colorado college or university, the Boettcher Foundation also honors the teachers who have committed themselves to supporting the high-achieving students who compete for the scholarship.

"We know that teachers are a critical component in the success of Colorado's students," said Tiffany Anderson, programs director for Boettcher Foundation. "For every student that leads a club or organization, there is a teacher who works late to supervise that organization. For every student who takes an independent study, there is a teacher who is spending extra hours guiding and supporting that student."

This year's teacher honorees were selected by finalists for the Boettcher Scholarship. Each educator will receive a plaque, a personalized tribute from the student who selected them and a $500 grant to be used for a project or activity to benefit students at their school.

"These dedicated and passionate educators have championed excellence in their classrooms, and we are proud to recognize them for helping Colorado students to achieve their goals and prepare for their futures," Anderson said.

The Boettcher Foundation will announce the final class of Boettcher Scholarship recipients in early May.

"At the Boettcher Foundation, we believe in the promise of Colorado and the potential of Coloradans," Anderson concluded." Every day we champion excellence across our state by investing in our most talented citizens and high-potential organizations, because supporting their hard work and leadership will enable them to give back for years to come."
