The Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe recently awarded $1,000 scholarships to Chris Gerrard and Nic Francis to attend LTCC in the fall.
The idea for the BE GREAT Graduate Scholarship fund started with Tillman, who also serves on the Lake Tahoe Community College Board.
“I thought this was an opportunity for our Boys & Girls Club to give our kids at the club that extra little boost of some encouragement and financial support to go to college right here in our own community,” he said.
Both recipients volunteered at the club while in high school.
“We think this is a great collaboration working with the Boys & Girls Club to encourage the youth in our community to continue their education,” LTCC President Kindred Murillo stated in a press release.
This was the first year of the BE GREAT Graduate Scholarship program. Donations to the BE GREAT Graduate Scholarship fund can be made through the Boys & Girls Club or Lake Tahoe Community College.
