Bently offers two $5,000 scholarships to DHS grads

Staff reports

A $5,000 engineering scholarship has been awarded by Bently Nevada Corp. to Henry McCubbin of Douglas High School in Minden and Kelly Johnson of Carson High in Carson City. Henry is the son of Mark and Sue McCubbin of Minden. Kelly is the daughter of James and Nancy Johnson of Carson City.

Academic excellence, community involvement and intent to pursue an electrical, mechanical, computer science or computer engineering degree are included in the scholarship criteria. In addition to the monetary award, student progress is monitored during his or her school years to help ensure academic success and continued scholarship support. Unlike the vast majority of other scholarships awarded to graduating high school students, Bently Nevada offers a summer internship to its scholarship students during the break between school years. Placement of the scholarship students during the summer is determined by progress in school and is of increasing complexity as the student nears graduation. By no later than the student’s senior year, placement will be side-by-side with professional engineers.

Johnson will attend the University of Nevada, Reno pursuing a major in mechanical engineering. McCubbin will attend Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colo., also pursuing a major in mechanical engineering.

An award luncheon in honor of the recipients will be held at Bently Science Park on July 30. The luncheon will be attended by company officials and all existing scholarship students.
