Aspiring Snow students get Rocky Mountain Power scholarships
EPHRAIM—The Rocky Mountain Power Foundation granted scholarships to two first-generation Snow College students who both aspire to become medical field professionals.
Angie Stewart of Mt. Pleasant and Shelby Trapp of Lehi were each awarded $1,000 to help them achieve their career goals through Snow College.
Stewart earned her high school diploma at 21 and said she had never put thought into going to college until she began volunteering on the local ambulance crew.
She became inspired to register and enroll in classes at Snow after a friend she met on the ambulance crew spoke of her college experience.
Stewart, mother of four, currently has a 3.7 GPA and began the licensed practical nurse program this fall. She says she loves teaching and learning and plans to continue her nursing education until she earns her bachelor’s degree.
Trapp also plans to pursue a career in the medical field. She says the desire came when her younger sister, Brooklyn, was diagnosed with a rare type of brain tumor.
“As my family navigated through this experience, I have seen firsthand the importance of diagnostic imaging in the treatment of my sister,” she said.
Trapp earned her medical assisting certification from Mountainland Applied Technology College before enrolling at Snow with the goal to become a radiologist.
“Many Snow College students need financial aid and scholarships to complete their education,” said LeAnn Stoddard, chair of the Snow College Foundation. “We thank the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation for this gift and recognize the impact their contributions have on the lives of our scholarship recipients.”
The Rocky Mountain Power Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Rocky Mountain Power. They help to support growth and vitality in the communities they serve through charitable investments. The foundation has awarded more than $58.5 million to a variety of non-profit organizations since 1988.
