DAVIS COUNTY — Three students from the Davis County area were part of a $47,000 scholarship give-away from The Comcast Foundation, one of them winning a surprising amount in Comcast’s first Founders scholarship awards.
Layton High School student Lariza Cortes was surprised by a $5,000 Founders Scholarship from Comcast this year. For the first time, four students received this award, Cortes being among them.
Kade S. Wilmarth of Centerville and Bryce J. Masterson of Kaysville also won scholarship awards from Comcast.
“Comcast seeks students who demonstrate leadership abilities in school activities and who reflect a strong commitment to community service,” said market vice president for Comcast-Utah Rodrigo Lopez.
The scholarships are given to students who focus on leadership. They were presented by Lt. Governor Greg Bell and state superintendent Dr. Larry Shumway in the 2010 Leaders and Achievers Scholarship Ceremony at the Utah State Capitol rotunda.
