Mercury Racing has given $5,000 scholarships to two Wisconsin students interested in pursuing careers in the technical trades.
High school students Ryan Beck of New Holstein and Caleb Cochran of Eden were selected for the engine manufacturer’s third-annual honors.
Beck is slated to attend Lakeshore Technical College this fall to focus on weld fabrication technology. Cochran is enrolling at Moraine Park Technical College and will pursue a degree in mechanical design technology.
“This is the third year we have provided this scholarship, and this year we are proud to award this money to two very deserving individuals who clearly have a passion for pursuing a technical trade,” said general manager Stuart Halley in a statement. “Mercury Racing depends on skilled tradespeople to have a prosperous future. It is our mission to continue to grow this program so that more students, like Ryan and Caleb, have the financial support they need to be successful.”
