Juneau Dipsticks present scholarships

Each year, the Juneau Dipsticks car club offers scholarships to eligible students who demonstrate aptitude for, and achievement in, the automotive, metal trades or a related technical field. Funding for the scholarship awards comes from proceeds of our annual car show, and the club extends thanks to the Juneau businesses and local residents for support of this annual event, which makes these awards possible.

This year we awarded a $2,000 scholarship to Marcus Moulton and a $1,500 scholarship to Damien Lofftus-Grant.

Moulton is a recent graduate from Thunder Mountain High School and is attending AVTEC - Alaska’s Institute of Technology in Seward. His major course of study is diesel mechanics, and he plans to use his new skills to seek employment in Alaska immediately after completing training at AVTEC.

Lofftus-Grant graduated from Juneau-Douglas High School in 2007 and is attending the Universal Technical Institute in Sacramento, Calif. He has a Civil Engineering degree from University of Idaho, and plans to use his new skills from UTI for a career in automotive repair and mechanics for high end “tuner” cars, like the 2006 Subaru he placed in last year’s car show.
