PA American Water Announces Winners Of Stream Of Learning Scholarships

PA American Water Wednesday announced 10 students throughout Pennsylvania, including eight high school seniors from the Pittsburgh area, have been selected to receive Stream of Learning Scholarships.

This is the fifth 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, with each winning student receiving a $2,000 scholarship.

Pennsylvania American Water awarded scholarships to Jamie Cavrak and Eric Kaminski of Bethel Park High School, Zien Deng of Chartiers Houston High School, Connor McCormick of Upper St. Clair High School, Angela Urban of Mt. Lebanon High School, Allison Vogrig of Canon-McMillan High School, Elizabeth Wildenhain of Seton-LaSalle Catholic High School and Melissa Zender of Chartiers Valley High School all from the Pittsburgh area.

Scholarships were also awarded to Jonathan Hong of Cumberland Valley High School (Cumberland County) and Mathew Lucas of Riverside Junior-Senior High School (Lackawanna County).

“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 environmental stewardship and community service,” said Pennsylvania American Water President Kathy L. Pape.

A panel of judges selected the winners from more than 120 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.
