The Independent Grape Growers of the Paso Robles Area (IGGPRA), an association dedicated to the advancement of superior wine grape growing, has announced its two local scholarship winners for the 2014-2015 academic year: Linda Jaimez, and Adam Hinrichs. Each student will receive $3,000 toward college tuition fees as they pursue degrees in viticulture-related fields.
Scholarship winner Adam Hinrichs, recent graduate of Templeton High School, will study Agricultural Engineering at Cal Lutheran beginning September 2014. Hinrichs has been an active participant in the National FFA Organization for the last four years, showing market goats and speaking about agricultural issues at local fairs. Scholarship winner Linda Jaimez, a Paso Robles native and current fourth year viticulture major at Fresno State University, is studying to become a vineyard manager and hopes to return to the Paso Robles community to work in the industry after graduation.
“Our 2014 scholarship award winners embody the goals and ideals of IGGPRA,” says Bob Fonarow, IGGPRA Scholarship Committee Chairman. “Our body of 200 plus IGGPRA members have made these scholarships possible. On behalf of all of our members and the Board of Directors, we wish these viticulture students the very best of good luck.”
IGGPRA initiated its viticulture scholarship program in 2012. Scholarships are awarded based on academic excellence and financial need. Students interested in applying for scholarships may contact IGGPRA Scholarship Committee Chair Bob Fonarow at (805) 857-4400 for an application.
