Laura Wilkerson began teaching at Broadmoor Community Preschool in August 1994. Since that time, she has touched the lives of hundreds of children through her work at the preschool where she continues to teach and has been the director since 1998.
Laura and her husband, Larry remain committed to the mission of the school and to positively impacting the lives of both current and former students. To that end, in 2009 the Wilkerson Scholarship was established in 2009. The $1000 scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior who was previously taught by Laura. In 2016, the Wilkerson Scholarship was increased to $1500.00.
An active group of BCP volunteer parents selects the scholarship recipient based on volunteer experiences and on the quality, uniqueness and creativity of the content in their essays. The following children have received the Wilkerson Scholarship:
2009 Rachel Lindau, Cheyenne Mountain High School
2010 Tanner Bowman, Cheyenne Mountain High School
