Tivian Chambers, of Mesa Ridge High School is the overall scholarship recipient and will receive a $3,500 scholarship award on behalf of Jiffy Lube. Jordan Taft of Palmer Ridge High School will be awarded $1,500 as a runner-up. Pine Creek High School will also receive $500 for submitting the most essays.
The "What Drives You?" scholarship program is open to all high school students in the Colorado Springs 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.
Tivian's drive is to make a difference in people's lives by obtaining a degree in clinical psychology. Jordan's drive is to pursue environmental and civil engineering, along with sustainable architecture, to design cities that are good for the environment and more desirable to live in.
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.
