					     2007 Alvin G. Flanagan & Walker Family Scholarship Application
                     University of Colorado at Boulder

ALVIN G. FLANAGAN MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
Al Flanagan, a founder of the Presidents Leadership Class and one-time President of Gannett
Broadcasting, was deeply committed to creating leadership education opportunities for bright students.
Mr. Flanagan’s friends and colleagues created the Alvin G. Flanagan Scholarship Endowment in 1982 to
honor him for his 45-year career in broadcasting by supporting “worthy and academically promising
students.” Scholarships are awarded to select CU students. Additional consideration is given to students
who are members of the Presidents Leadership Class and who have career aspirations in the field of
broadcast journalism.

WALKER FAMILY SCHOLARSHIP
Cecil Walker, retired Chairman and CEO of Gannett Broadcasting, was instrumental in establishing the
scholarship fund to honor Alvin G. Flanagan, his predecessor at Gannett Broadcasting. A long-time friend
of the University of Colorado, Mr. Walker was an officer of KUSA-Channel 9 in Denver, a Gannett
station, until 1984. Mr. Walker also served as a trustee for the Presidents Leadership Class. His two sons,
Robert Walker and Richard Walker, and daughter-in-law, Karen Harty Walker, are graduates of the
University of Colorado. In 1995, the Walker family established a scholarship fund as a personal
commitment to expand educational opportunities for promising students at the University of Colorado.
Additional consideration is given to students who are members of the Presidents Leadership Class and
students in the College of Business.

The Flanagan and Walker scholarships are merit-based awards given to current students, who demonstrate
leadership, academic achievement, and community/university involvement. All applications must be
typed. Submit this application and the supporting materials to:
