Three Douglas County women were awarded $1,500 scholarships from the Douglas County affiliate of American Association of University Women. Leah Porter, Gretchen Stulock and Lauren Hallstrom are studying at Colorado universities.

Porter is studying business management and human resources at the University of Colorado at Denver. She has maintained a 4.0 GPA while raising two daughters as a single parent. Last spring, she earned her associate’s degree in business from Arapahoe Community College. She was the only student member of the State Board of Community Colleges while at ACC. Porter grew up Malaysia and came to Colorado 10 years ago.

Stulock is a high school teacher at Littleton High School and is pursuing a master’s degree in curriculum education at the University of Northern Colorado. She searches for ways to get involved with her students. She chaperoned a student trip to Costa Rica, served as a facilitator of a professional learning community and sponsored a Greenhouse Club. Outside of school, she is a highly skilled cellist for several theater groups and the Denver Trio Project.

Hallstrom is studying English and creative writing at Colorado State University. Her love of creative writing led her to publish two award-winning middle-grade and Young Adult novels by the age of 15. Lauren placed first in the Colorado Independent Publishers Association competition, receiving the Gold Award in the Juvenile Fiction Category. As a volunteer at the Parker Library for seven years, she was a Reading Buddy and a mentor for children struggling with reading. All her volunteer work led the library to hire her as its first teenage employee. Hallstrom’s goal is to become a youth librarian.
