Ed Cook Tree and Crane Service is pleased to announce this year’s recipients of its “Woodchips for Scholarships Program,” for South Tahoe High School’s Industrial Arts Academy.

This year, Arnold Higareda was awarded the Automotive Repair Scholarship, a $500 shopping spree at Napa Auto Parts that was donated at cost.
