Neilson gets scholarship

Committed to investing in local youth and building a sustainable future workforce, Encana Oil and Gas awarded scholarships to Morgan Neilson of Meeker High School, Tyler Miles of Grand Valley High School and Craig Spaulding of Coal Ridge High School.
Encana’s four-year scholarship is given annually to one graduating student in each school district where Encana operates. The full value of each scholarship is $10,000 over four years. The student must pursue a degree in engineering, geology or geophysics, or a technical or trade program associated with the oil and gas industry.
Neilson plans to study agriculture communications in preparation for water rights law at Oklahoma State University. Morgan has been active in both the Rio Blanco and Colorado 4-H clubs. She has served as president for three Rio Blanco 4-H club committees and the state officer team.
“This program has taught me the importance of hard work, dedication, leadership, teamwork, and about the very important agriculture industry,” she said.
