Aaron Gutierrez Scholarship Fund


Widefield School District 3 Parks & Recreation has been serving the Widefield/Security area for over 45 years. During this time our programs and activities have impacted thousands of lives. One of those lives was a young boy named Aaron Gutierrez. Unfortunately, in 1992 his life was cut short by Leukemia at the young age of 9. Aaron participated in a great number of the Parks & Recreation programs. His parents wanted his legacy and love for sports to continue through a scholarship program named in Aaron’s honor.

Since then the Aaron Gutierrez scholarship fund has helped individuals and families in our community who may not have the financial ability to participate in programs and activities. These programs and activities help individuals with confidence, skill development, team work, fair play, self-esteem, fitness, school, well-being and of course new friendships.
