Calaveras Community Foundation (CCF) presented Career and Technical Training scholarships to eight high school students from both Bret Harte and Calaveras High Schools at recent award ceremonies. Each recipient will receive $1200.

Graduating high school students and their anticipated college and field of study are as follows: Sierra Wade-Bryan’s College-Court Reporting; Carleigh Bates-Cabrillo College-Diagnostic Imaging; Clay Norman-No. California College of Construction-Heavy Equipment; Raymond Schulze-Modesto JC-Fire Service; Jordan Fisher-Sacramento City College-Medical; Benton Frye-Delta College-Mechanics; Kyle Caires-Consumnes River College-Electrical Lineman; and Kayla Sadler-Modesto JC-Agriculture.

The widely varied fields of study above illustrate that there are many other career paths or certificates of training other than traditional four-year degrees. 2013 is the third year that these scholarships have been given.

Scott Ratterman, CCF Grants & Scholarship Chair says, “I am so amazed each year at how well this community supports our local high school graduates.  Our C&TT scholarship is just one more way that CCF is making a difference in our community and I am proud to be a part of it.”

As a 501 c 3 non-profit organization, CCF administers the funds that made these scholarships possible.  Business partners who earmark their generous donations to benefit the C&TT fund are Pacific Gas & Electric Sierra Pacific Industries and Save Mart Supermarkets along with numerous individuals and other businesses.

Congratulations to all!
