City Honors College Preparatory Academy’s Kaitlin Brown, has earned a $40,000 scholarship from Edison International, the parent company of Southern California Edison.
SCE representatives delivered the great news to Kaitlin during a surprise visit to her yearbook class on Friday, April 10.
A senior who plans to major in environmental science at UC Santa Barbara, Kaitlin was overcome with emotion when handed a check for $40,000 by SCE Local Public Affairs Region Manager Marvin Jackmon. Her parents, CHCPA Principal Terrance Dunn and Inglewood City Councilman Ralph Franklin were also in attendance.
Kaitlin is one of 30 high school students across SCE’s service territory to be named a 2015 Edison Scholar.
The company’s scholarships support underrepresented students pursuing college studies in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) fields, and are made available with shareholder dollars. They are paid out over four years. Recipients also are eligible for possible summer internships at Edison.
Keep up the great work Kaitlin!
