CtK is extremely proud of all of our Youth, and when they are recognized for excellent outside the walls of the church we cannot contain our joy!

Our own Matt Pane is a recipient of the 2022 Daniels Fund Scholarship!

“The Daniels Scholarship Program provides the opportunity for highly motivated students to earn a bachelor’s degree that helps them build a successful career and rewarding life. Daniels Scholars® demonstrate exceptional character, leadership, and a commitment to serving their communities. Bill Daniels would also want his scholars to be proud Americans who value our free enterprise system and are prepared to give the world their very best shot.

“The Daniels Scholarship Program offers a four-year college scholarship that provides financial and personal support focused on helping Daniels Scholars succeed in college, and in life. The Daniels Scholarship can be used at any accredited nonprofit college or university in the United States. Our goal is not only to help Daniels Scholars succeed in college, but to ensure that they thrive beyond their years in college.

“Every year, Daniels Scholars are selected from our four-state region of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. Daniels Scholars have attended more than 400 colleges and universities in 48 states.

“Through March 2021, the Daniels Scholarship Program has provided more than $220 million in undergraduate scholarships to approximately 4,600 students.

“Daniels Scholars are selected because they embody the criteria Bill Daniels defined for the program:

  • Strength of character
  • Leadership potential
  • Commitment to serving their communities
  • Academic performance or promise
  • Well-rounded personality
  • Emotional maturity and stability

“Bill Daniels would also want his scholars to uphold the values that meant so much to him. Those values include ethics and integrity, honesty, respect for people, loyalty and reliability, entrepreneurial spirit, patriotism and dedication to community, commitment to excellence, and etiquette.”
