 46 Bakersfield area students received scholarships worth $1,000.

Representatives from PG&E presented $1,000 scholarships to students who have successfully completed the New Energy Academy program at Independence High School.

The presentation took place during the New Energy Academy Scholarship Awards dinner.

PG&E launched and funded the New Energy Academy at Independence High School – along with four other high schools in Northern and Central California — during the 2010-11 school year.

When PG&E President Chris Johns visited the school that first year, he announced that each student who successfully completes the program and graduates would receive a $1,000 scholarship from the utility.

The New Energy Academy is a three-year program for students in grades 10 to 12 that creates a school-within-a-school. The program’s curriculum is focused on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education to help prepare students for careers in the fields of energy and the environment. This program helps prepare students for the workforce, particularly with skills needed for careers in the energy sector. The energy sector faces a severe shortage of skilled workers as an impending wave of retirements is expected over the next few years.
