Fund Purpose: 
The purpose of this fund is to provide scholarships for an Eastbrook High School graduating senior or a student at Ivy Tech, Taylor University, or Indiana Wesleyan University pursuing a career in green technologies or a related field.

Fund Story:
The Eastbrook Alternative Energy Scholarship Fund was started to accompany a project to place a wind turbine at Eastbrook High School. This scholarship is awarded to a graduating Eastbrook senior seeking a degree in green technologies.

The wind turbine project began in 2012 as alternative energy was first being introduced into the school curriculum. The high school math and science teachers were integrating alternative energy concepts into their courses. LaRea Slater, Co-Chair of Eastbrook Alternative Energy Project, believed this scholarship could be a natural bridge to help students continue in this field. Slater was a junior high teacher for 33 years, and she still enjoys helping students to find their “niche.”

“The scholarship is an incentive, and the students are honored to receive it,” Slater said. “It can encourage the students to go on, and it shows that people, other than their parents and school, are interested in them.”
