Chaparral and Robalo Boats awarded more than $60,000 in college scholarships to six graduating seniors in the Chaparral and Robalo family.
“We are proud to assist our employees by helping their sons and daughters pursue an advanced education,” Chaparral and Robalo president Jim Lane said in a statement. “We feel that continued education is important and we are excited to support their endeavors towards a career.”
During the last 19 years, Chaparral and Robalo have awarded 43 scholarships totaling $400,000.
“Our employees are some of the hardest-working people in the marine industry, and we are proud to help their families each year with our scholarship program,” Chaparral and Robalo founder Buck Pegg said.
Lane and Pegg congratulated each recipient and their parents during a luncheon held in their honor on May 28. They are MaKayla Eaton; Elizabeth Giddens; Yaqueline Torres; Carlie Trowell; Samantha Tucker; and Emily Wilkerson.
