“This is the third group of students given the MR Opportunity Scholarship. We are honored to work with the high schools, Montana Tech, and the Washington Foundation to be part of this great opportunity to positively affect these young people’s lives by providing a world-class education.”
The University, along with Liberty Oilfield Services’ Chief Executive Officer & Chairman of the Board Chris Wright and his wife Liz, presented the Liberty Scholarships to the Butte High School students.
Liberty Oilfield Services, an innovative service company providing specialized stimulation services to optimize well production, made a 10-year, $40,000/year commitment to Montana Tech to provide opportunities for students with financial need to make their educational dreams a reality. This inaugural cohort of scholars includes Ty Insko, Isabelle Ralph-Puderbaugh, Myles McClernan, Jenna Hodges, Larissa Bento, Cameron LaFond, Hayley Billson, Kyra Bragg, Lucas Kingston, Soraya Casagranda, Ravyn Goodwin, Sydney Doyle, Jenna Sanders, Daniel Kump, Haylee Powers, Kobe Moreno, and Kameron Moreno.
“I’m thrilled to award these scholarships to 20 Butte students,” said Cook. “We believe in Butte and the youth of our community. I am excited to follow these students’ journeys at Montana Tech. I want to thank the donors who have given so generously to this impactful scholarship and made a significant investment in these individuals.
