TEHAMA COUNTY REPUBLICAN
Five Tehama County students received a total of $2,000 as recipients of this year’s Tehama County Republican Community Service Scholarship.
Angel Finefrock of Corning, Dylan Hausman of Los Molinos, and Olivia Henderson of Corning will each receive $500. Stephanie Mills and Elizabeth Fuller both of Corning each will receive $250.
“As a committee, we feel this was one way we can invest into the future,” said Mike Holtsclaw, Tehama County Republican Chairman. “These students not only stand out academically but also excel in making a difference within their community,” said Holtsclaw.
“It was encouraging to meet so many young people who understood what community service is all about,” said Jerry Crow, a member of the scholarship committee. “They are all inspiring.”
The scholarship was open to all qualifying high school seniors in Tehama. Applicants must be a member of the current year graduating class from any public, private, charter or home school located in Tehama County who has maintained at least a 2.0-grade point average in high school. Applicants were asked to complete an application, provide two letters of reference and to submit an essay detailing their community service and why community service is important in being a contributing citizen. Out of the 14 applicants, five were chosen as finalists and interviewed. The number of recipients and amount awarded was determined by the Scholarship Committee. The final determination was based on the applicants' interview and financial need.
This is the sixth year that the Tehama County Republican Central Committee has offered this annual award which helps support worthy recipients who plan on pursuing a course of study leading to a post-secondary degree or certificate from a college, university, community college, or vocational school. Since the scholarship's inception in 2014, 20 Tehama County Students have benefited from the award.
