GREELEY — Aims Community College and the Daniels Fund are partnering to support students at risk of not being able to afford a college education by making $70,000 in scholarships available for non-traditional students, especially for GED students and adults seeking to return to college. “The Daniels Opportunity Awards will be used at Aims to help students who have taken a non-traditional path to a high school diploma,” said Aims Foundation Executive Director Susan Kirkpatrick. “Their future economic outlook will be improved through this inspiring investment. We are very grateful to the Daniels Fund.” Hank Brown, outgoing president and CEO of the Daniels Fund, said the award is meant to benefit students who are the least likely to pursue a college education. “The Daniels Opportunity Award initiative is intended to give a boost to students of all ages and at all levels of society seeking to secure the economic and social benefits of a college education,” Brown said. Incoming Daniels Fund President and CEO Linda Childears said the Daniels Opportunity Award honors Bill Daniels intent to make a real difference in the lives of the scholarship recipients. “In establishing the Daniels Fund, Bill Daniels wanted to help individuals overlooked by other scholarship programs but who have every potential to complete a college education if given a chance and the necessary support,” Childears said.
