The Monte Vista Water District Board of Directors recently awarded Kate Hendley of Chino and Stephanie Mendoza of Montclair the 2021 "Bruce J. Lance, Jr. Water Scholarship.” Each year the board awards scholarships in Lance’s honor for his 44 years of extraordinary
service to the District and the community as the agency’s general counsel.
Ten students submitted application packets, which included a written essay describing how they have been impacted by recent legislation in California that makes “conservation a way of life.”
The Bruce J. Lance, Jr. Water Scholarship was created in 2013, when the board adopted Resolution 669-13 commending Lance for his years of service as theDistrict’s general counsel. The scholarships have been awarded annually for the past eight years to Montclair High School graduating seniors who plan to attend
college. This year, the program was expanded, allowing any high school seniors living in MVWD's service area to apply.
The District congratulates this year’s winners and wishes them the best as theymove on to college and beyond!
