KELSEYVILLE – This year’s recipients of the J. Fletcher and Anne Elliott Educational Scholarship awarded last week at Kelseyville High School are seniors Justin Gentle and Jaalon Terry.

This year’s award is $10,000 to each recipient.

Gentle and Terry both have outstanding academic and athletic high school careers.

Both ranked high in their class and both had exemplary athletic success through their high school years with Gentle playing baseball and football along with wrestling, and Terry playing baseball, football and basketball.

Gentle is going to UCLA with a goal to become a civil engineer and possibly returning to Kelseyville to look for a career in Lake County.

Terry is going to UC Davis, where he will major in mechanical engineering.

“This scholarship will help keep me out of student debt and relieve the stress of working and studying at the same time,” said Gentle.

“This takes a big burden off my shoulders, and hopefully I won’t have to ask Mom for more money,” said Terry.

This scholarship foundation was originally established by the late Anne Elliott with the help of Rian Sommerfield at Nestegg Investment Consulting and is expected to fund future scholarships for many years to come in memory of her husband J. Fletcher.
