North Tahoe, Truckee high students eligible for Liberty Utilities scholarships

TAHOE-TRUCKEE, Calif. — Liberty Utilities is once again offering academic scholarships for eligible high school and college students within its service territory.

Eight schools participating in the fourth annual scholarship program are South Tahoe High, Loyalton High, Douglas High, Coleville High, North Tahoe High, Truckee High and Portola High, 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-California. “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.

Interested students should contact their school’s financial aid office or counselor to find out more about the scholarship and to obtain an application.

Individual schools have different deadlines, but all scholarships will be awarded starting mid-May through the end of June.
