College of Idaho signs Verhaegh to Heritage Scholarship

March 13, 2019

Timmer Verhaegh made it official on Tuesday, committing to continue his education at The College of Idaho this coming fall. He signed his papers in Sterry Hall in front of several members of the College’s faculty and staff.

Verhaegh, a 2018 graduate of Bishop Kelly High School in Boise with a stellar academic record, is a Heritage Scholar who plans to pursue an education that will prepare him for medical school. After his high school graduation, Verhaegh is spending this year at Phillips Academy Andover in Massachusetts to continue his preparation for higher education.

He plans on competing for the College’s track and field team as well.

The Heritage Scholarship at The College of Idaho, a full-tuition award, is available by invitation only, for candidates who “demonstrate both the qualities of mind and the qualities of person that will allow a student to flourish in The College of Idaho's rigorous and community-oriented academic environment and in the challenging world beyond college.”  You can learn more about the Heritage Scholarship by clicking here.
