John Lynch Foundation and Star of the Month.

On Monday, May 13, the John Lynch Foundation hosted the 2019 Star of the Month Celebration at Broncos Stadium at Mile High.

John and Linda Lynch honored sixty student-athletes at an awards ceremony which celebrated the accomplishments of student-athletes on and off the field from middle and high schools around Colorado. These student-athletes received monthly Star of the Month awards throughout the year.

The John Lynch Foundation has awarded more than $1 million in scholarships to nearly 300 student-athletes, including those with special needs.

For Scott Reiman, the time to invest in the education of future generations is now.

” target=”_blank”>Hexagon Chairman and CEO Scott Reiman, the time to invest in the education of future generations is now.

From early real estate investments in Denver to his role as ACE Scholarships Board of Trustees Co-Chairman, the purpose is always the same: invest in what works and what lasts.

ACE is a lasting investment. For nearly 20 years, the nonprofit has helped Denver students living in underserved areas attend private schools and expand their opportunities through school choice.

“We are proud of what ACE has accomplished to date. Over the past 17 years, ACE has provided over 19,000 scholarships worth more than $42 million, and has partnered with 149 schools throughout Colorado. These scholarships have proven to be a strong investment in Colorado’s future,” says Reiman.

ACE scholarship recipients are twice as likely to graduate from high school and attend college. In Colorado, the ACE Class of 2018 had a 98% high school graduation rate.

Still, there is more that can be done to support choice education for Colorado’s low-income students. While there are more than 380,000 low-income students throughout the state, nearly 11,000 seats remain empty at ACE’s partner schools.

The time is now for these students and ACE Scholarships’ Learning Can’t Wait 2020 Campaign, led by Reiman and fellow Co-Chairman Chris Wright, will ensure more than 1,000 Colorado students have the chance to pick the school that best fits them and sets them up for success.

With Reiman and Wright supporting the effort, ACE Scholarships is making its mark on the community and creating a long-lasting impact through school choice.

This year marks the hundredth anniversary of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado mentoring programs.

Since 1918, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado has offered programs that match adults (Bigs) and youth (Littles) for ongoing mentoring relationships. Currently, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado provides programs that are community-based, sports-centric, and/or academics-focused. Bigs and Littles build their relationships through regular meetings and participating in events and activities together.

Through these programs, Littles are able to build self-confidence, improve academically, and create healthy habits. These positive results are also shown to continue into the adult lives of former Littles, demonstrating the lasting impact of Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring.

On October 18, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado will be marking their centennial at the Big Night Out Gala, which will gather community leaders, philanthropists, and current Bigs and Littles. The event will honor volunteers and corporate partners as well as celebrate a century of guiding youth to a bright future.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado has a special place in the heart of Scott Reiman, who spent several years volunteering as a mentor through the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. He congratulates Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado on 100 years of guiding youth toward a bright future.
