Warren Reed-Lions scholarships given to three DHS grads
Jeana Valenzuela, Rebecca Groves and Jamie Bratton are the 1999 recipients of the Reed/Lions Club Scholarship. Each were awarded a $2,000 scholarship.
The Reed/Lions Club Scholarship was founded on the death of Warren Reed, a long-time member of the Carson Valley Lions Club and a respected man within the community.
“This grant is designed to help the students of single parents who have true need for financial assistance. It is open to students of Douglas, Coleville, Smith Valley and Whittell high schools,” said Reed’s son, Alan Reed. “My dad felt strongly about returning some of his success to kids of this area, and I’m honored to announce the 1999 recipients of this award. We’re excited about helping these three students and look forward to years and years of helping the young people in our community.”
Jeana is a 1998 graduate of Douglas High School and will attend the University of Nevada, Reno. She plans to major in the health care field and would like to become a physical therapist. She is the daughter of Pat Valenzuela and the late Joe Valenzuela.
Rebecca is a 1999 graduate of Douglas High School and will attend Western Nevada Community College. She will seek a major in architecture, with hopes of attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. She is the daughter of Teri Groves.
Jamies is also a 1999 DHS graduate and will attend WNCC. She is majoring in education, specializing in pre-school and elementary children. She is the daughter of Linda Bratton.
The Reed/Lions Club award is administered by a committee of four, consisting of Mike Coleman, retired CPA; Sandra Coverly, school teacher at Scarselli Elementary; Jim Loughery, retired teacher at San Mateo Community College; and Jim Norton, insurance agent with Warren Reed Insurance and a former trustee for El Dorado County Office of Education.
