Photo submitted Boettcher Scholar Mari McCarville (center) named Jenny Eyler as one of her most influential teachers. Along with the honor, Eyler received a $1,000 award which she used to purchase a set of Montessori bells for her Paonia classroom.

Mari McCarville, a former student of the North Fork Montessori School, was one of 42 young leaders recognized with a Boettcher Foundation Scholarship in May 2016. A graduate of Grand Junction High School, she is majoring in music and biology, with a concentration in neuroscience, at the University of Denver.

Each Boettcher Scholar is asked to name an influential teacher and Mari selected her preschool/kindergarten teacher, Jenny Eyler. Eyler was awarded $1,000 to be used in her classroom. The Boettcher Foundation asks that the award be used to benefit as many students as possible so Eyler bought a set of Montessori bells that can be used by all students for years to come. Providing a chance to experience music at an early age by playing the perfectly pitched bells seemed fitting.
