Pennsylvania American Water announced that 10 students throughout Pennsylvania, including three high school seniors from Northeast Pennsylvania, have been selected to receive Stream of Learning Scholarships. This is the sixth year that Pennsylvania American Water offered the program to support outstanding students within its service areas who are charting a course of study that is critical to the water and wastewater industry. Each winning student receives a $2,000 scholarship.
Locally, Pennsylvania American Water awarded scholarships to Elijah Williams of Crestwood High School, Arvind Murali of Holy Redeemer High School, and Michael Shutlock of Dallas High School.
A panel of judges selected the winners from more than 100 scholarship applicants, who were evaluated on such criteria as academic achievement, letters of recommendation, community service and future careers plans in the water and wastewater industry.
“We are proud to award Stream of Learning Scholarships to such extraordinary students who not only achieved the highest academic standards but also share our commitment to environment stewardship and community service,” said Pennsylvania American Water President Kathy L. Pape.
Pennsylvania American Water, a subsidiary of American Water (NYSE: AWK), is the largest water utility in the state, providing high-quality and reliable water and/or wastewater services to approximately 2.2 million people.
