Serene is headed to Great Britain in the Fall to pursue a double master’s degree, and took time out on Monday afternoon to thank the Mayor and all those responsible for the award, saying, “For me, Colorado Springs always has been,is,and will always be my launch pad in life, and it’s because of the incredible people that have crossed my paths in this wonderful city.”

She told News5 that she is as proud of the spirit award as she is the Rhodes Scholarship. We wish her well in her future endeavors and congratulate Serene on the award.
