Lucy Bogue Memorial Scholarship
Lucy Bogue founded Yampa Valley College in 1962, which became the Steamboat Springs Campus of Colorado Mountain College. She fulfilled her dream of bringing higher education to northwestern Colorado, enlisting the help of several enthusiastic Steamboat residents. She was the first president of YVC, serving for four years. In addition to her work as a dedicated educator, she was an author, poet, and playwright. Among her published books are Miracle on a Mountain, the story of the creation of the college, and Dancers on Horseback about Perry-Mansfield Theatre and Dance School. Because of her interest in writing and the arts, this scholarship has been established by her family and friends to support local full-time students pursuing degrees in the the arts.
