Colton's Angels Scholarship Award

On May 19, 2009 Colton's Angels awarded our first scholarship. Jase D. of Spanish Fork High School received a $1000 scholarship to use toward the auto mechanic program at Utah Valley University.

The award was presented by Gayle and Angie, Colton's mom. Before presenting the scholarship, Gayle talked about our group, and how we had started Colton's Angels several months after Colton's passing as a way to keep ourselves busy and provide friends and family with some comfort. After about one meeting, we as a group decided to focus our energy and efforts into providing a scholarship in Colton's name for someone who had as much passion for auto mechanics as Colton did, and wanted to pursue it as a career.
