On May 18, 2016, the Town of Estes Park recognized Tanner Stark as the Estes Park High School Student Pride Scholar during the high school's Scholarship Award Ceremony. Mayor Todd Jirsa and Trustee Ward Nelson presented Mr. Stark with an engraved plaque and a one-time award of $3500 to be used toward his college tuition expenses.
Mr. Stark was selected to receive this honor based on his involvement in community service projects throughout his high school career. His volunteer and community service commitments ranged from church-related volunteer work, a mission trip to Belize, academic tutoring, coaching and flood relief projects.
Mr. Stark will be attending the University of Northern Colorado in the fall of 2016 to study mathematics.
