Two Central Lakes College students enrolled in the Diesel and Heavy Equipment Technician program were recently awarded a $1,000 tool scholarship from the mikeroweWORKS Foundation.
Tommy Hoheisel, of Pierz, and Rustle Warwas, of Eveleth, are both PSEO students currently enrolled in the CLC program.
In order to receive the $1,000 tool scholarship from the mikeroweWORKS Foundation, the student must be in an AED accredited Diesel/Equipment Technology program and have the highest cumulative GPA. The candidate is chosen by the Diesel and Heavy Equipment Technician program instructor.
The mikeroweWORKS Foundation is a foundation that Mike Rowe (host of the “Dirty Jobs” TV show) started to get people interested and to help them succeed in the Diesel/Equipment technology field. For the scholarship, two students are chosen from each college or high school that is AED accredited. It’s a great honor to be chosen, CLC program staff say. The scholarship money must be used to buy tools, which quite easy to do in the Diesel and Heavy Equipment Technician industry.\
