The Rachel B. Noel scholarship was named in memory of Dr. Rachel B. Noel, the first African American elected to the Denver Public School Board, and who leaves behind a distinguished legacy in her effort to integrate Denver’s public schools with the Noel Resolution passed in 1970.
This opportunity will recognize two MSU Denver students, who through their actions have embraced on Rachel B. Noel’s legacy and served as an exemplary model for fellow MSU Denver students. These exemplary actions may include, but are not limited to: active community service, diversity advocacy efforts inside and/or outside of the campus community, and academic excellence that echoes Rachel B. Noel’s emphasis on the importance of education.
A $500 award will be granted to each Rachel B. Noel Scholarship recipient. Recipients are asked to attend and will be recognized at the Rachel B. Noel Community Event on Sunday, March 11, 2018.
