Kay Sherwood, and 2009-10 Rockies student researcher, has been awarded the Stenner Scholarship from USA Cycling. A senior environmental policy major, Sherwood maintains a 3.4 grade point average while competing both on the road and in mountain biking for the Colorado College Cycling Team. After being introduced to cycling as a freshman, Sherwood was quick to enter her first bike race and went on to qualify for road nationals that year. The Tiger squad then introduced her to mountain biking where she went on to take the Division II short track national title as a sophomore. The Ipswich, Massachusetts, native has since collected four Collegiate National Championship medals on both the road and the mountain bike while working tirelessly to introduce more women to the sport and her Tiger team. Sherwood’s work with the Rockies Project focused on land and water use in agriculture, and organic production in the Rockies region.
The annual Stenner scholarship program is funded by donations to the USA Cycling Development Foundation in the name of John Stenner, one of the founders of collegiate cycling.
