Eight Mile High Squash students secure scholarships for summer camps in Colorado and New Hampshire. Mile High Squash creates pathways to college for historically underserved students by creating a web of relationships that empower, inspire, and support its students.
According to Eric Eiteljorg, Executive Director of Mile High Squash, “We are pleased to announce that several of our students secured scholarships to attend summer camps outside what Mile High Squash offers to its student. These opportunities challenge our students by being away from home for an extended time, meeting new people from around the country, taking classes that would be otherwise, unavailable, and, engaging in activities that will require them to trust people they have just met. Three high school students will be attending a five-week academic camp Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire. Four middle school students will be attending Camp Chief Ouray in Colorado. One middle school student will be attending a four-week outdoor education camp, Camp Sanborn in Florissant, Colorado. These eight scholarships are valued at more than $20,000.00.”
Eiteljorg continues, “Mile High Squash works to create a web of relationships that empowers, inspires, and supports its students. These relationships allow Mile High Squash students to cast themselves as successful students, students who are ‘good at school’, and who plan to attend college. For the first time in its five-year history, a group of Mile High Squash students reached out to these camps themselves and created opportunities to develop new relationships that support their efforts of becoming college-bound.”
