Walnut, CA (April 6, 2023) – Walnut Valley Water District (WVWD) distributes over $3,500 in financial aid to local teachers and students in the Walnut Valley Unified School District (WVUSD) and the Rowland Unified School District (RUSD). Two high school seniors from Walnut High School and Rowland High School were selected as part of a scholarship contest, the Scholar Dollar program, awarding $1,000 in college scholarships to both students. Two teachers from Rowland High School also received grants through the Splash Cash program, a program that helps fund water education and conservation field trips.

Both the Splash Cash and Scholar Dollar programs are offered through Walnut Valley Water District’s collaborative group known as the Public Water Agencies Group Conservation and Education Team (PWAG CET). Schools throughout the WVUSD and RUSD are eligible for current and future financial support. Eligible schools include Diamond Bar High School, Diamond Ranch High School, Rowland High School, Walnut High School, and all middle school and elementary schools within WVWD’s service area.

“Walnut Valley Water District is excited to support our local teachers and students,” said WVWD’s Sustainability Coordinator,  Jillian Keller. “Through this collaborative effort, the water professionals in this region are able to help educate our future water leaders to ensure a sustainable water future.”

 PWAG CET was established in 2022 in order to provide conservation and educational resources to teachers and students throughout Los Angeles County.
