Cherry Creek High School graduate Sydney Beckett was named the 2018 Dorothy Walker Scholar for overcoming her learning disability.
This $1,000 scholarship recognizes Walker’s efforts and advocacy for individuals with learning disabilities or ADHD and her passion for young people striving despite the challenges they face. The LEAD Foundation selected Beckett from students across Colorado.
“We were very impressed with Sydney’s hard work and accomplishments,” said Salle Howes, Dorothy Walker Scholarship administrator. “This award is well deserved.”
