For the fourth consecutive year Heavenly Mountain Resort awarded $4,000 in scholarships to five recent high school graduates, bringing the resort’s overall commitment to the Heavenly Community Scholarship Program to $80,000. The scholarships are designed to help further the education of local area students.

“This is really a benchmark year for us,” said Blaise Carrig, Heavenly’s chief operating officer. “The first recipients of this scholarship should be starting their senior year in college this fall. We are now helping 20 young leaders through their college careers and it’s pretty special to be a part of that.”

This year’s recipients include Annie Austin of Douglas County High School and Hannah Harris of Whittell High School. Alex Hand, Courtney Blann and Allison Abicht, all of South Tahoe High, were the recipients of the Heavenly dependents’ scholarships.

The Heavenly Community Scholarship Program was established to assist qualified high school seniors with annual financial support to help offset the expense of a college education. Five scholarships are awarded each year to seniors coming out of Whittell, South Tahoe and Douglas County high schools. More than 50 students applied for this year’s awards.
