The winner of the 2013 GGA scholarship was Aaron Miller, a senior at Healdsburg High School!

Healdsburg High School senior Aaron Miller was awarded The GGA 2013 Scholarship at the GGA Summer Barbecue June 20, 2013. The $2,500 scholarship was recently upped to $3,000, our largest yet. Scholarship chair Louis Capuano III said all five applicants were top rate, with the lowest GPA at 3.8 and the highest 4.6, making it difficult to choose. After careful grading, his team selected Aaron.

To be eligible, all applicants must have a relative who is directly involved with The Geysers and has spent a majority of his or her working time in Geysers geothermal work. Aaron’s father, Mike Miller, is a mechanical engineer at The Geysers, having started there with PG&E 24 years ago. He’s been with Calpine since 1999.
