Boyer will attend the University of Colorado at Boulder and will study strategic communications with an emphasis on public relations.
A volunteer at the Denver Zoo with more than 500 volunteer hours, King has been an officer in the Arapahoe High Key Club. She is active in the Denver Rescue Mission, Sweet Dreams and Colorado Feeding Kids. Additionally, King is a member of the Future Business Leaders of America, and is a FBLA District Officer. She will attend the University of Missouri and study biology.
A senior at Arapahoe High, Renshaw is active in Student Council and is an officer in DECA (formerly called Distributive Education Clubs of America), competing in district, state and national competitions.
