On November 9, 2022, the Sweetwater Authority (Authority) Governing Board awarded the Work for Water Scholarship to two local students. David Inchaurregui Jr. of Chula Vista and Kassandra Beltran of National City were each awarded a $1,000 scholarship to support their career goals of working in the water industry. 

Inchaurregui Jr. is currently attending the Center for Water Studies at Cuyamaca College in pursuit of a career as a water treatment plant operator. Beltran is seeking her Master's Degree at San Diego State University with a goal of working in water policy and administration. 

“The Board is proud to support these future water professionals in their studies,” said Board Chair Alejandra Sotelo-Solis. “Their career goals represent just two of the many exciting and meaningful careers that exist within this essential industry.”

Launched earlier this year, the Authority’s Work for Water Scholarship encourages students in the Authority’s service area to pursue a career in the water industry. Additional information is available at www.sweetwater.org/scholarship.
