The scholarship recipients have all chosen majors reflecting their career goals with the top choices being STEM-related, health, criminal justice and social services. Students will be attending College of Southern Nevada, Nevada State College, Truckee Meadows Community College, University of Nevada, Reno and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

“The NV Energy Foundation is proud to be able to honor these high school seniors with a scholarship as they further their education in the state of Nevada,” said Tony Sanchez, Executive Vice President of Business Development and External Relations for NV Energy. “These students are engaged in academics, volunteerism and helping our community and we look forward to their continued successes in higher education and beyond.”
