Jennifer Lynn Price Endowed Scholarship

She believes strongly in education and has a passion for science. Jenny was born in Baxter Springs Kansas, raised in New Mexico, and moved to Denver as an adult. Coming to higher education later in life, Jenny attended MSU Denver while working and knows the struggle to succeed.
