May 15, 2013 – Strata Energy, Inc. is pleased to announce the award of the 2013 Strata Community Energy Scholarship to Mr. Austin Harwood of Moorcroft High School. Mr. Harwood will be enrolling as an Electrical Engineering major at the University of Wyoming in the fall of 2013. As the scholarship recipient, Mr. Harwood will receive $2,000 per academic year for up to four years.
Selection of the scholarship winner was based upon the applicants’ academic record, SAT/ACT scores, and essays regarding the applicant’s personal accomplishments and interest in the uranium or nuclear industries.
The scholarship was created as an outgrowth of Strata’s “Community Energy” philosophy, a core belief of which is that a partnership is implicitly created with the communities in which we operate. To foster this partnership, Strata created the scholarship to provide opportunities for young people within these communities to pursue educational success. Strata will award the scholarship each year to one student graduating from a Crook County high school or accredited home-school program. Strata will begin accepting applications for the 2014 award in January 2014.
Strata would like to thank all applicants for this year’s award, with special gratitude to Jeff Carrier, Crook County Superintendent of Schools, for his participation in the scholarship selection committee.
Strata is currently developing the Ross uranium project near Oshoto, slated to begin production in mid-2014. For more information on the Community Energy Scholarship or the Ross Project, please visit www.stratawyo.com or contact Strata Energy directly at (307) 686-4066.
