Kingdom Enlightenment Scholarship

The Kingdom Enlightenment Scholarship Foundation (KESF) was founded by Stephen S. Fredericks through his last will and testament. Steve died of malignant melanoma on April 13, 1991, at the young age of 34. Steve grew up in Southeast Denver, graduated from John F. Kennedy High School, and attended college in Arizona. He later worked as a golf pro in Texas and it was about this time when Steve was diagnosed with cancer.

For years he had anguished over the injustice in the world and the disparity between the rich and poor. With the short amount of time he had left he wanted to do something about it. He volunteered at the Denver Street School and began to counsel troubled youths at the Gilliam Youth Service Center. He discovered that the majority of them were minorities and came from poor families.

Before he passed, Steve created this scholarship program to help educate the less fortunate young people in our society and hopefully break the poverty cycle.

Winograd Award Scholarship

The Winograd Award was established in 2017, to honor Leonard Winograd’s 30 years of teaching excellence at CCD and for his contributions to CCD’s Ourglass publication. This yearly award recognizes excellence in creative writing by a CCD student whose work is published in Ourglass as selected by CCD faculty.

One of the greatest opportunities Leonard offered students was the chance to be involved in Ourglass, CCD’s literary magazine. Leonard championed a vision of the importance of the student's voice and personal expression on campus through his work on Ourglass. In doing so, he opened the door for many students who otherwise would not have had a forum to share their personal experiences and stories- he let students know that their voices were important.
