For more than a decade, NV Energy has supported Western Nevada College through its scholarship program. This year, NV Energy Scholarship Committee chairman Johnny Hargrove has presented five $1,000 scholarships to WNC students for the 2014-15 academic year.

Recipients are Lisa Moya, Leah Kniffen, Shawnye Garren, Gloria Gouty and Colton Hansen. They are a diverse group of students studying business administration, environmental sciences and engineering, said WNC Director of Development Katie Leao.

“Western has a great partnership with NV Energy, and it is apparent through their commitment to give back to the community,” We are grateful for their continued support of our students, and are looking forward to strengthening our relationship.”

Since 2002, NV Energy has donated $65,000 in scholarships to students at WNC.

“We feel like even a small scholarship can be a head start in life,” said Karen Ross, Community Relations manager for NV Energy. “We’re really trying to further education opportunities and access to education for students throughout the state.”
