Jorge Acevedo was presented with a $40,000 check by Rondi Guthrie from Southern California Edison. Jorge is the recipient of the Edison Scholars Program that supports students with big dreams to power the future and achieve their academic goals through the study of science, technology, engineering or math, known as STEM fields.
Each year, Edison International, the parent company of Southern California Edison, awards $1.2 million in scholarship to 30 high school seniors. Jorge was 1 of 2 in our region that covers 50,000 square miles of service territory to receive this generous amount. The award funds will be spread over 4 years.
