OGDEN -- Rocky Mountain Power Foundation has donated $3,000 to Ogden-Weber Applied Technology College for scholarships to assist students in the college's electrical trades and business programs.

Since 2004, the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation and the PacifiCorp Foundation for Learning have contributed a total of $20,500 to the college foundation to support the scholarship fund and college projects.

As a result, 17 academically talented, low- to moderate-income students have been helped with scholarships.

Jim Taggart, Ogden-Weber Tech vice president, said graduates from the school's electrical trades and business programs are in demand, and the foundation's support "is important in helping students meet their educational goals while providing area employers a highly skilled, technically trained workforce."
