Colorado Springs, Colo. – Jan. 24, 2013 – Colorado Springs Mayor Steve Bach will present Pikes Peak Community College with a Spirit of the Springs award today at the Colorado Springs Conservatory, 415 Sahwatch, from 3-4 p.m. PPCC is being recognized along with the Colorado Springs Conservatory, Leadership Pikes Peak and Colorado Springs Together.
The Spirit of the Springs program is funded by the Mayor’s Cup golf tournament, which took place during the summer of 2012. To be considered for the funding, applicants must achieve certain objectives: celebrate and connect to Colorado Springs, cultivate future city leadership and encourage citizen involvement.
PPCC receives the largest portion of the proceeds from the Mayor's Cup, totaling $24,000. These funds will be used to provide four local students with two-year scholarships. The students will be selected at the end of the current school year.
More information regarding the award will follow the presentation.
