Jennifer Cox wins Belczyk Scholarship
The Jennifer Belczyk Scholarship committee announces the following MPHS student as a recipient of a $1,000 scholarship being presented in honor of Jennifer Belczyk, Ms. Jennifer Cox.
Jennifer Cox is an extremely involved MPHS student. She demonstrated a “can do” attitude and doesn’t let anything get in her way from accomplishing her goals. She participated in numerous activities both in school and away from school. Volleyball, Future Business Leaders of America, baseball, yearbook (editor), prom committee, student council, and cheerleading (captain) kept her involved in school. Volunteering with mini cheer camps, taking stats for legion baseball, helping with Race for the Cure, Bible study camp and holding several part-time jobs including City Market, Silverton Ski Resort and various coffee shops consumed a tremendous amount of time and energy out of school.
Jennifer plans on attending Mesa State College next year, double majoring in psychology and business management. The 24 high school dual credits earned at MPHS will help her with a good start toward achieving the challenging goal of a college double major. Upon graduation from college she is planning on working with people in either field to demonstrate her love of the diversity of others.
Jennifer is the daughter of Penny and Robert Cox of Granby. Mr. and Mrs. Cox believe “Jennifer has great focus and there is nothing she can’t do when she puts her mind to it.”
Jennifer Belczyk was a student at Middle Park High School and graduated with the class of 2002. She participated in several activities while in school but was most dedicated to volleyball. A good Christian life was important to her as evidenced by her participation in the Young Life Christian Organizations. Outside of school her love of people and animals and working part-time jobs consumed every available spare minute. Jennifer had chosen to serve her country in the military and enlisted in the United States Air Force and following graduation was to begin active duty on Aug. 5, 2002. She passed away on June 6 after a car accident, just 12 days after graduation. She is loved and missed by her family and friends. This scholarship celebrates the life of Jen.
