2010-2011 Scholarship Recipients

Your Board would like to thank all of the members who contributed this year, despite the economic hard times, to our Chapter’s Scholarship Program. Because of your generosity, Scholarship America was able to select five recipients, from eighteen applicants in an outstanding group, for the upcoming school year. From the inception of the program in 2005, we have been able to grow from two to five recipients because of everyone’s help. This program not only helps the students, but it helps with Chevron’s reputation and potential employees.
