AEE Nevada 2017 Scholarships Awarded 

On November 16 and 17, 2017, scholarship checks were presented to four students (two from UNLV and two from UNR) at the bi-monthly lunch meetings for the Nevada  Chapter of the AEE.  Each student is pursuing an energy related discipline and we welcome them not only as successful recipients of this award, but as new members to the professional chapter.
