Michael Atwell awarded the prestigious Alva C. McFarlane Scholarship

Michael was presented the scholarship, totaling $60,000, during the senior pinning ceremony.
The scholarship program was developed to assist in preparing young and upcoming engineers for positions within the public utility, and over the years the Authority has benefited from scholarship recipients who have returned to work at WAPA. McFarlane, who was instrumental in developing the scholarship at WAPA, served the USVI’s youth as Director of Apprenticeship and Training at the V.I. Department of Labor.
Michael plans to attend Arizona State University in the fall.
