By: Jiffy Lube
Lena Richardson, of Douglas High School is the overall scholarship recipient and will receive a $3,500 scholarship award on behalf of Jiffy Lube. Jake Kattelman of Damonte Ranch High School will be awarded $1,500 as a runner-up. Douglas High School will also receive $500 for submitting the most essays last year.
The "What Drives You?" scholarship program is open to all high school students in the Northern Nevada area.
Students are asked to submit a 500-word essay detailing what drives them now, as an opportunity to express their inner drive and ambitions. Finalists are selected based on their essay submission. Finalists are then required to submit a short 1-2 minute video that expands on the essay they submitted and then the overall winner is selected.
Lena's drive is to make a difference in the lives of anyone who is struggling by obtaining a degree in psychology. Jake's drive is to obtain a degree in material sciences and engineering and continue to find ways to improve the human experience while causing less harm to the environment.
The scholarships are open to all students currently enrolled in high school regardless of test scores or grades.
Scholarship money will go directly towards secondary education, in the form of college or other qualified technical or professional program chosen by each winning student.
