MHS Awards Night students

The McMinnville Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the recipients of its annual scholarship program, awarding four promising high school seniors with funding to support their pursuit of higher education. Three of the scholarships were presented during the McMinnville High School Senior Awards night by Chamber of Commerce’s President and CEO, John Olson.

Each year, the Chamber’s Scholarship Selection Committee faces the challenging task of choosing recipients from a pool of incredibly talented and deserving students. Our criteria include financial need, personal character, service-mindedness, academic record, and a sincere interest in furthering their education.

This year, we are proud to recognize four exceptional students who have demonstrated outstanding achievements in all these areas.

The 2024 Scholarship Recipients:

  •  Ivanna Vingen Ruelas
  •  Cesar Flores Velazquez
  •  Esmeralda Mendoza Contreras
  •  Rhine Nelson (not pictured)

These students represent the best of our community. They have emerged as leaders and are ready to make a difference in the world.

We are truly fortunate to have the opportunity to support these students and look forward to their future success. We thank all applicants that applied for the scholarship and proudly congratulate our selected recipients.

Our Community and our Chamber is built on the principles of hard work, dedication, and a commitment to service. Thanks to generous contributions received from the Chamber Annual Awards dinner dessert and silent auction, the Chamber is able to offer student scholarships to go toward future academics. It is through your support of the McMinnville Chamber and its programs that we can offer such opportunities that will contribute and impact the lives of our future leaders.

Our Commitment to Community

In extending this scholarship, the McMinnville Area Chamber of Commerce reaffirms its dedication to inclusivity, collaboration, and growth. We are committed to empowering students to achieve their aspirations and become pillars of our beloved community.
