Greeley Stampede Foundation Scholarship Recipients Announced

The Greeley Stampede is proud to announce the 2020 SuperStars Series lineup and Faith & Family Night artist. The 2020 lineup includes Chris Young, Brett Young, Jon Pardi, and LOCASH & Phil Vassar. One more concert will be added to the lineup at a later date to complete the series. Continuing the popular Faith and Family Night concert will be Lecrae.

Each year the Greeley Stampede Foundation awards scholarships to Northern Colorado high school seniors to support our community and students pursuing higher education. Since the Foundation began the program, more than $520,000 in scholarships have been awarded.

Recipients were selected based on their outstanding academic results, school involvement, leadership in the community, and plans to further their education. The selected 2020 Greeley Stampede Foundation High School Academic Scholarship recipients represent 11 Weld County High Schools with each student receiving $2,500. The Foundation Board is proud to help these community-minded students build a bright future for themselves and, as a result, our community.

For the sixth year, one college-level rodeo scholarship was awarded based on academic results and a competitive level with the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association. The 2020 recipient is Kelsey Story who attends Colorado State University and is pursuing a dual major in Equine Science and Agriculture Business.

Also recognized by the Foundation with a scholarship, is 2020 Miss Rodeo Colorado, Hailey Frederiksen. As Miss Rodeo Colorado, Hailey has dedicated herself to represent the state of Colorado, the sport of rodeo and the Greeley Stampede as the home rodeo of the Miss Rodeo Colorado Pageant.
