Luke GarciaHunt Scholarship pic 2018 got a jolt of good news on Thursday before school: The Jordan High senior is among five students to earn Canyons School District’s inaugural Hunt Electric Merit Scholarships. Reserved for hard-working students who aspire to work in the electrical industry, the full-ride scholarship covers the cost of college tuition, books and fees — while also providing recipients with 8,000 hours of paid, on-the-job training — everything they need to pass the state Journeyman’s licensure exam. The students must maintain a 2.5 GPA and remain gainfully employed by Hunt Electric throughout the duration of the scholarship. But they’ll be paid full-time wages, in addition to having the cost of their postsecondary education covered. “This is a fantastic opportunity, and a great example of how by partnering with industry, we can set students up for success in the workplace while addressing the needs of private industry,” says CSD’s Career and Technical Education Director Janet Goble. Utah faces a skilled labor shortage, and electricians are especially in high demand. “There’s huge demand for skilled workers in this area, and it’s a career track that pays well,” Goble says. The scholarship was brokered by the CTE team and representatives of Salt Lake City-based Hunt Electric, Inc. Following is the full list of recipients:
Luke Garcia, Jordan High
Hayden Stoddard, Brighton High,
Andrew Jones, Corner Canyon High
Isaac Guevara, Corner Canyon High
