Three Colorado Springs-area teachers were among the 42 from around the state to be honored Friday for their impact on this year’s Boettcher Scholars.

Michael Gohde, who graduated in May from the private Colorado Springs School, nominated teacher Bette Anterra for recognition.

Jessica Perea, who graduated in May from William Mitchell High School in Colorado Springs School District 11, nominated teacher Hayley Raitz.

And Tanner Bobak, who graduated in May from Palmer Ridge High School in Lewis-Palmer School District 38 in Monument, nominated teacher Kait Cumsille.

The Boettcher Foundation hosted its 25th annual Teacher Recognition Awards Program at the Denver Botanic Gardens last week.

Each teacher received a $1,000 grant from the foundation to be used toward an educational program or project to benefit students at the school in which they teach.

“It is a significant achievement for a teacher to be recognized as the most influential educator in a Boettcher Scholar's life,” Tim Schultz, president and executive director of the Boettcher Foundation, said in a news release.

Each year, the Boettcher Foundation Scholarship recognizes Colorado’s most talented students by providing them with a full-ride scholarship to attend a Colorado college or university.
