LIBERTY UTILITIES OFFERS HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS
Lake Tahoe, CA February 12, 2018. Liberty Utilities is pleased to once again offer academic scholarships for eligible high school and college students within its service territory. The eight schools participating in the sixth annual scholarship program are South Tahoe High School, Loyalton High School, Douglas High School (students residing in Alpine County only), Coleville High School, North Tahoe High School, Truckee High School and Portola High School, as well as Lake Tahoe Community College.
“We’re very pleased to be able to offer these scholarships to deserving students,” said Greg Sorensen, President of Liberty Utilities West Region. “We really enjoy offering this kind of educational support within the communities we serve.”
The seven high school scholarships are $500 each. High school seniors must have a minimum unweighted GPA of 2.5 and be accepted to an accredited 4-year or 2-year university or college or an accredited vocational school. They also must have some community service experience in the community which they reside.
The Lake Tahoe Community College scholarship is $750. Those students are eligible for the scholarship if they have a current 2.5 GPA or higher, and have completed at least 18 quarter units at LTCC. They must be enrolled in LTCC’s upcoming Fall quarter, and have demonstrated leadership through school and/or community service experiences within the community they reside.
Interested students should contact their school’s financial aid office or counselor to find out more about the scholarship and to obtain an application. The individual schools have different deadlines, but all scholarships will be awarded starting mid-May through the end of June. Liberty Utilities representatives will attend the school’s awards ceremonies to present the deserving students with their scholarships.
