The Knox County Visioning Group (KCVG) is looking for persons who have an interest in pursuing a trade in Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC). The KCVG is offering a scholarship to a senior in a Knox County, Texas, high school or Knox County, Texas, resident who wishes to pursue this training in the amount of $1500.

Knox County will experience a loss of individuals in the HVAC field in the future. The KCVG would like to help replenish that talent by helping an individual interested in HVAC become licensed and return to Knox County. Full HVAC certification requires one year of school, then a three-year apprenticeship before allowing individuals to sit for the test. This is a long-term commitment between the KCVG and the winner of this scholarship.
Applications can be found by clicking here or by calling 940-459-4121. Students can also pick up an application at their high school councelor’s office. The deadline to apply is May 1, 2012.
