Calaveras Community Foundation (CCF) received a generous $5000 donation for 2014 from Pacific Gas and Electric Company to benefit the Career and Technical Training Scholarship Fund.
Established in 2010 by Paul and Darlene DeBaldo, the Career and Technical Training Scholarship Fund helps to support alternative forms of high education, including two-year community colleges and trade schools.
“PG&E is proud to support the Calaveras Community Foundation’s Career and Technical Training Scholarship Fund,” said Dylan George, Government Relations Representative for PG&E. “Participating in this Fund enables PG&E to accomplish two of our most important goals – investing in the communities we serve by helping young people attain technical skills needed for a career in the work world and developing a strong work force that will be prepared to do the work needed to maintain and improve PG&E’s electric and gas systems.”
Six local high-school applicants are the recipients of the 2014 scholarships from CCF’s Career and Technical Training Scholarship Fund. Those scholarships, recognizing students at both Calaveras High School and Bret Harte High School were awarded in June. Each student received a check for $1500. Anticipated fields of study for these graduates included: electrical lineman, veterinary medicine, medical/health field, automotives and nursing.
