Visalia, Calif.-based Troy Korsgaden Insurance Agency of Farmers Insurance Group is awarding seniors from five Visalia, Calif., high schools with scholarships to recognize students who exceed academically and dedicate their time to community service.
Introduced for the first time this year, Korsgaden is awarding $1,000 per campus, which will typically be split between a graduating boy and girl at each of the five schools. The schools include Sequoia High School, Mr. Whitney High School, El Diamante High School, Golden West High School and Redwood High School.
“I have long been committed to community involvement, and the rewards are immeasurable,” said agency founder Troy Korsgaden. “We are excited about helping cultivate this same commitment among young people. We want to reward students who work hard and demonstrate an appreciation for their community.”
This year’s “Make a Difference” scholarship recipients were selected from applications submitted earlier this year and whose essays outlined their commitment to helping others and improving their communities. Each student is involved in local service organizations or independent volunteer work.
“As a father myself, I know how special it is to see your children become positive, involved members of their community,” Korsgaden said. “I have always wanted to offer some form of motivation for students to embrace their community; this felt like the perfect way to do that.”
Korsgaden founded Troy Korsgaden Insurance Agency in 1983, which offers an array of insurance and financial services products.
