The Monte Vista Water District Board of Directors recently awarded Ciara Towns of Montclair High School the 2023 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.
Students living or attending school in MVWD's service area were invited to submit an application packet, which included a written essay describing how they would convince Californians to take action against the drought.
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 the District’s general counsel. The scholarships have been awarded annually for the past eleven years to high school graduating seniors who plan to attend college.
The District congratulates this year’s winner and wishes Ms. Towns the best as she moves on to college and beyond!
