RANDOLPH — Character, leadership and service are the core values that define a Daniels Scholar. For Rich County students Austin Groll and Alec Silva, this is just the start of a list of their strong qualities.

The Daniels Scholarship Program distinguishes itself by selecting young leaders of exceptional character who have a desire to give back to their communities.

Bill Daniels defined the specific criteria and unique perspective used to select Daniels Scholars. In addition to overall character, natural leaders with the motivation to succeed and the potential to be engaged in the community are sought.

From the thousands that apply, roughly 250 young people from Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming are awarded scholarships each year. In 2013, Utah received 16 of the scholarships awarded. It is amazing that two of the 16 recipients from Utah were 4-H members from Rich County.

The Daniels Scholarship is a four-year scholarship that applies toward the expenses of attaining a bachelor’s degree at any nonprofit, accredited college or university in the United States. The program provides its scholars with resources, encouragement and inspiration far beyond the financial assistance to help them earn a college degree. Scholars are connected to a wide range of like-minded peers and mentors.

Austin Groll is the son of Shawn and April Groll, and Sherry Groll. Alec Silva is the son of Dusty and Brandee Mills.
