Brooke Gaber, a 2013 MHS graduate and daughter of Kathy & Steve Gaber, has been selected as the recipient of the 2013 Kelly Frank–Shannon McKee Memorial Scholarship. Brooke plans to attend the University of Northern Colorado in the fall to begin her studies in nursing.
This scholarship was created as a living memorial to Kelly Frank and Shannon McKee, both Montrose High School students who were killed in an auto accident in 1983.
Recipients must demonstrate the characteristics that Shannon and Kelly demonstrated: good moral character and habits, above average scholarship, a sense of sportsmanship and fair play, positive citizenship, community awareness, and significant contributions in both athletic and non-athletic extra- curricular activities. Brooke’s accomplishments as a varsity athlete in both volleyball and swimming, as the MHS Yearbook editor, a Student Council Representative, member of National Honor Society and her extensive volunteer service throughout the community, made her an outstanding candidate for this scholarship.
