Every year the Muir-Chase Foundations provides financial support to children of Muir-Chase associates. We are proud to introduce the 2019 Muir-Chase Foundation Scholarship Recipients.
THE CLASS OF 2019
Eddie Armendariz graduated New Harvest Christian School in the spring. He comes from a family of plumbers; his great great grandfather, grandfather, uncles and dad have all had careers in the trade, and he believes it is his ‘calling.’ After two summers spent in the pre-fab shop at Muir-Chase and learning alongside his dad on side jobs, Eddie anticipates entering an apprenticeship training program. Eddie will be joining the Muir-chase team in 2020 and is ‘looking forward to being mentored by men who take pride in what they do.’
Jocelynn Blas graduated Saint Joseph High School in the spring. She plans to attend Cerritos College this fall to study business and cosmetology, and then transfer to a four-year university to complete a business degree. She sees this scholarship as a way to give back to her parents and demonstrate her drive to succeed in her ultimate goal of opening a salon.
Kaia Friedly will be a sophomore OCC this fall. She looks forward to transferring to UC Irvine to complete a Bachelors of Science for nursing and pursue a career as an RN in Pediatrics. This scholarship will help her accelerate her goals to, in her words, “help, serve and love on others in a time of need.”
Kasey Watson will be a sophomore at the College of the Canyons this fall. Kasey has spent most of her life preparing for a career as a nurse, as a member of the Medical Science Academy at her high school and as a volunteer at her local hospital where she worked alongside a social worker to better understand the emotional needs of patients and their families. Kasey plans to transfer to Cal State Northridge and hopes to become a nurse in Oncology to “give back to people that are experiencing the hardships of a cancer diagnosis.”
Alexis Winstanley graduated from UCLA in the spring. As a first-generation college student, she takes a great deal of pride in her education at UCLA and is very passionate about a career in editing. She was the site leader for The Writer’s Den on-campus, an organization that volunteers at local schools and teaches creative writing to students; and she is also the copy and content editor for OutWrite, a news publication on campus. Alexis is currently working as a tutor, and searching for copy editing jobs with various publishers. She is looking forward to taking the next step in her career!
