We are excited to learn how the person you may nominate has risen to meet the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Track Head Coach ~ Matt Hall
We are excited to announce that long time Journalism, English and Yearbook teacher, Matt Hall, will be our 2021 Head Track Coach. Matt is known for his rapport with students, his enthusiasm and his ability to build strong relationships in any setting. Matt has been an assistant track coach at Mountain View for 2 years, as well as a Head C team and assistant coach for football. He is passionate about developing students and helping the Mountain View Track & Field program carry on the legacy of its past as a top program in the region. In Matt's words, "this is what being a HS coach really boils down to---the ability to teach them about life through sports."

Stephen J. Roy Memorial Scholarship
The Larimer County Bar Association’s Stephen J. Roy Memorial Scholarship is available to high school seniors from Larimer County who express an interest pursuing post-secondary education in the law or a legally-related field. We have been informed by the CFNC that this year’s award will be in the amount of $2000.
Students can apply for this scholarship via the NOCO Scholarship Foundation website.
For the past several years, Burg Simpson has awarded college scholarships to the graduating high school seniors who won our essay competition regarding the importance of the civil jury system and how it is being threatened.
This year, we are awarding a total of 10 scholarships: 9 scholarships for $1,000, and 1 scholarship for $2,500. This competition is an outstanding opportunity for high school seniors to obtain additional funds for college, and to learn about the importance of the U.S. civil jury system.
The deadline for students to submit their 1500 word essay is February 1, 2021.
I am attaching a brochure that details the scholarship competition and the application process, and all of this information is also available on our website at:
