Calaveras Community Foundation Receives Donation from PG&E
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) recently presented Calaveras Community Foundation (CCF) with a generous $5000 donation to benefit The Career and Technical Training (C&TT) Scholarship Fund.
The Career and Technical Training Scholarship Fund, founded in 2010, helps to support alternative forms of higher education, including two-year community college and trade school certificates. In 2015, six C&TT scholarships were awarded to high school graduates of Calaveras High School, Bret Harte High School and Mountain Oaks. Each student will receive a $1500 scholarship.
“At PG&E, we strive to deliver on our commitment to help our local communities be as vibrant as they can be,” said Nick Glero, Senior Manager of PG&E’s Stockton Division. “We take great pride in the community partnerships we have created, like CCF, and are grateful for the opportunity to acknowledge and support citizens and organizations committed to making California a better place to live and to work.”
Students (3 girls and 3 boys) will be entering similar fields of study on their way to obtaining two-year degrees or certificates. Three will be pursuing degrees in the medical field; two in fire science, and the final student is seeking a degree in law enforcement. CCF is very proud of these Calaveras County students and wishes them every success.
CCF administers the funds that make these C&TT scholarships possible. Since the fund’s inception in 2011, more than $37,000 has been awarded. Business partners like PG&E, as well as numerous individuals and other local businesses earmark their donations to benefit the C&TT fund. CCF is most thankful to PG&E for their continued loyal support.
