Feb 12, 2014 - From staff reports

The University of Wyoming has presented its top academic scholarship, the Trustees' Scholars Award, to 104 outstanding high school seniors from across Wyoming for 2014.

The premier scholarship for Wyoming resident high school seniors covers the cost of tuition, fees, room and board for eight semesters at UW, starting with the fall 2014 semester.

Recipients are evaluated on their academic excellence (high school grade-point average, ACT/SAT scores and curriculum rigor).

For this year's award winners the average GPA is 3.98, and the average ACT score is 32.

To retain the scholarship all four years at UW, students must maintain full-time continuous enrollment (at least 12 semester hours) during the fall and spring semesters each year, along with a 3.0 cumulative GPA.

Scholarship recipients include:

Lander: Andrew Gramlich, Nicholas Merritt, Emily Schimelpfenig and Madeline Smithbaker.

Riverton: Autumn Hutson and Kathryn Thayer.

Shoshoni: Mark Ballou.

Pavillion: Tia Hampton.
