About the Cameron Holland Scholarship

Established in 2019 to honor Cameron’s Memory

Cameron running track

The Cameron Holland Scholarship recognizes a Ralston Valley Senior that has academic, athletic and character traits that compliment Cameron’s memory.  Cameron was dedicated to academic achievement, was a two-sport athlete (football and track) and possessed a kind and generous personality.

Consideration is given to Ralston Valley High School seniors that:

  • GPA: 3.0 or higher.
  • Participate in at least 2 CHSAA Sanctioned Sports -3 years participation and earn a varsity letter in one sport.
  • Provide two (2) letters of recommendation that support the following character traits: kindness, respectfulness, and aware of the feelings of others.
  • Recipients must pledge to wear a seatbelt anytime they are in a vehicle as either the driver or a passenger.

In lieu of flowers, donations were made to the Cameron Holland Scholarship to start the scholarship.

Since the inception of the scholarship, additional fundraising has been done and we have partnered with the Denver Foundation to administer the scholarship.
