IDAHO GOVERNOR’S CUP SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS ANNOUNCED

(BOISE) – Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter announced the recipients today of the 2017 Governor’s Cup Scholarships to Idaho colleges and universities. The 42nd Governor’s Cup fund-raising drive brought in enough money for 38 new scholarships to be award this year.
