Snowflake Taylor Chamber of Commerce Awards Scholarships

The Snowflake Taylor Chamber of Commerce recently awarded two $500 scholarships to Snowflake High School seniors, Tyree Hancock and Taylor Lopez.

Interested seniors were asked to submit an application and essay describing their pursuit of a future career path, the next steps toward their success in that field, and how the assistance would impact their plans. Tyree and Taylor were chosen from 10 applications submitted.

The Chamber’s scholarship fund was started to support students who have been working toward their future profession. The purpose of the Chamber scholarship fund is to identify students who have demonstrated initiative in pursuing their post high school vocation and to support them in the pursuit of their passion.

This was the first year for the scholarship program; the Chamber will be continuing the program annually. All scholarship funds are derived from local Chamber member businesses through various Chamber events.
