Congratulations to Delaney Bishop – 1st-ever scholarship awardee

On May 20th, 2018 the first ever Eric Foresman and Christine Nelson-Foresman scholarship was awarded to Linn Mar High School graduate, Delaney Bishop!

Delaney learned about the Iowa Renewable Energy Association through volunteermatch.org. She volunteered well over 60 hours through the past 3 years and is helping us grow our Imagine Energy Volunteer team.  She plans to attend Iowa State University where she will study Environmental Science.

Proud parents, Amy and Dan Bishop with Delaney as she receives her scholarship check from President of the Board, Don White.

As stated by President of the Board, Don White

Renewable energy solutions involve applied science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM). Therefore, it is imperative that we engage Iowa high school students with hands-on opportunities to make these connections. The more hands-on opportunities students have, the more likely they are to pursue educational opportunities in these fields.

Offering scholarships to students who prove themselves is a great way to attract more students to the cause.
