The El Dorado Hills Chamber of Commerce has proudly awarded five scholarships of $1,000 each to local graduates, who plan to continue their education at a university, college, or technical school. This year the Chamber received 16 impressive applicationsfrom highly qualified students. The Chamber is pleased to announce that one scholarship was funded by Pacific Interstate Insurance Brokers and one scholarship was funded by Pacific States Development. Our other scholarships were funded by the proceeds from our Silent Auction at our annual Installation & Business AwardsDinner. The Chamber looks forward to growing this sponsorship program in the future.

The scholarships are judged by a committee of fourbusiness leaders from our community. It was a difficult task, as each of the applicants were most deserving. The point system is based on the following criteria: 50% community service, 15% work experience, 15% extracurricular activities, 10% scholastic GPA, and 10%financial need. The El Dorado Hills Chamber of Commerce congratulates the following scholarship recipients for 2024 and wishes them continued success in their future endeavors: Bo Gordon, Grace Torchiana, Mahee Haswani, Sienna Gallo and Vikram Dev Singh, allfrom Oak Ridge High School.
