Valley Behavioral Health in Tooele County awarded five $500 substance abuse prevention scholarships to high school seniors throughout Tooele County. Each year, Valley Behavioral Health awards the scholarships to recognize and honor students who have made outstanding contributions in the field of substance abuse prevention, and who promote healthy life choices in their school and community. Students must exemplify a drug-free lifestyle and be involved in the promotion of substance abuse prevention programs in Tooele County. Students are also judged on how much service time they give to their school and community. All of the chosen students have met the scholarship criteria, and have been awarded for choosing to be drug-free and for their contributions. We congratulate them for their past efforts, and hope they will continue to be exceptional role models in their chosen educational field.
The recipients of this year’s award winners are:
Kourtney England from Tooele High School will be attending Utah State University.
Brenda Hernandez from Tooele High School will be attending Utah State University.
Nicole McKenna from Stansbury High School will be attending Westminster College.
Allie Wall from Dugway High School will be attending Snow College.
Jacob VanDerWerken from Tooele High School will be attending Brigham Young University.
Thank you again for all you did for your school and community to promote prevention efforts, and good luck to you in your future.
