Rye High School graduate Chance Adair is one of four recipients of the Kane Family Foundation scholarships offered through Pueblo Community College. For the first time the Kane Foundation will finance two students who transfer to Colorado State University-Pueblo after earning their associate degree at Pueblo Community College.

Adair was selected based on academic record, a formal application with essay, and an interview. The scholarship will cover up to four years of expenses for tuition, mandatory fees and books, and the potential value is close to $30,000 per student.

When contacted, Adair's comments were full of gratitude. "When you get that call after all the stress of looking for a job and wondering how to pay for college, you feel truly blessed." In response to his own merit and good grades, Chance gave credit to his parents for teaching him to be a hard worker.

While in high school, Adair devoted himself to student council and year-round athletics including varsity football, basketball and track while also volunteering his services to local snow removal, youth coaching and firewood cutting. He will study mass communications, possibly emphasizing journalism.

The Kane Family Foundation scholarships are intended to reward students for both merit and hard work. They were established for state universities in 2006 and for state community colleges in 2008.
