2023 Spaulding Scholarship Recipients: Franco Ocampo and Gretel Huss

We chose two students to represent the Spaulding Scholarship for 2023. Each student will be eligible for $1000/year or $4000/four years.

We are so proud to honor Franco Ocampo, a first generation college student, graduating from Carey High School this year. Franco, who never received a grade lower than A – in four years of high school will be attending Idaho State University to study electrical engineering. He is the 2023 recipient of the “Dave Spaulding Memorial Scholarship” awarded by Trout Unlimited each year to a deserving Blaine County student. Franz grew up working alfalfa fields with his dad and credits both his mom and dad for teaching him the virtues of “hard work and honesty.” His teachers describe Franco as “humble, creative, focused and possessing integrity.” Felicidades Franco!

We are also pleased to present a $4,000 scholarship award to Gretel Huss, who will be attending Dartmouth this fall. A passionate outdoors woman who loves to kayak and backcountry ski, Gretel plans to major in applied mathematics and environmental studies. We can’t wait to hear how college goes! Congrats Gretel!

The Spaulding Scholarship is financially supported by the Trout Unlimited Hemingway Chapter as well as 65 individual and foundation donors. We look forward to growing the scholarship fund and supporting students in their college journey! If you are interested in supporting future and current students please CLICK HERE.
