Some 101 outstanding high school seniors from across Wyoming have been selected to receive the 2021 Trustees’ Scholars Award, the University of Wyoming’s top academic scholarship.

The premier scholarship for Wyoming resident high school seniors covers actual credit hours taken as well as room and board costs for eight semesters at UW, starting with the fall 2021 semester. Students from 34 high schools were chosen.

Students from Sheridan High School awarded the scholarship are Fisher Burris, Tyler Hegy, Megan Hoffmann, Micall Hoopes, Marguerite Hubert, Brayden James, Logan Jensen, Julia Kutz and Kathryn Moran.

Kendall Redinger, from Big Horn High School, was awarded the scholarship and Kaylin Gosney, from Kaycee High School.

Two students were awarded from Buffalo High School, Reuben Haas and Wolfgang Wuerker.

Recipients are evaluated on their academic excellence (high school grade-point average, ACT/SAT scores and curriculum rigor). Individual interviews were held as well. For this year’s award winners, the average GPA is 3.97, 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.
