We wanted to send a huge congratulations to our newest BTECH Presidential Scholarship winners!
This year we had over 130 high school students apply for our Bridgerland Technical College scholarships! These 5 recipients were chosen as our Presidential Scholarship winners out of all those applicants!
The Presidential Scholarship honors the academic and vocational achievements of distinguished graduating high school seniors. This scholarship recognizes students who demonstrate exceptional ability and accomplishments in career and technical education. They were chosen based on an in depth application and interview. The final selections were made by President Campbell, based on the recommendations from our interview committees.
We are thrilled that these students have chosen to attend Bridgerland Technical College and we would like to introduce each of the recipients to you!

Evelyn Anderson (started 6/1)
Evelyn Anderson is the daughter of Mark and Ronnette Anderson. She attended Logan High and came to BTECH to weld during high school. She recently came back to complete the Welding Technology program! After finishing her welding certification, she plans to attend USU and major in Mechanical Engineering with an emphasis in aerospace on an Air Force ROTC scholarship. Evelyn felt like welding was a great step in her education so she can have a physical understanding of the design which will lead her to her long-term career goal of working for the Air Force. She would like to have knowledge in both welding and engineering so she can improve their aircrafts and possibly create a new aircraft for them! Having a deeper understanding of both the practical side and the theoretical side of designing will help her reach this goal. In her spare time, she enjoys backpacking, camping, gardening, photography, and cooking.
