(STOREY, NV) – In June 2014, the Storey County Professional Fire Fighters presented two graduating high school students with the organization’s “2014 Scholarship Award.” These education-based donations are part of an annual effort for the firefighters to further education in their community.
Kurt Lynch and Chris Dusfrense of Virginia City High School were each presented with a $1,000 scholarship, which will help them with tuition and books when they attend college in the fall of this year. Members of the Storey County Fire Department personally presented the students with the scholarships (see photos).
