Designed and funded by the Allred family, the scholarship will provide a significant training and funding opportunity for five graduating seniors from area high schools.
The students will receive $3,000 in scholarship funds, in addition to having an intense training and travel opportunity.
The fours sons of Eddie and Connie Allred, formerly of Monticello, have created the scholarship to help local students to move ahead after graduation.
The scholarship developed after an Out of the Blues feature story in the San Juan Record by Maggie Judi. Chance Allred, the Senior Vice President of Sales for Vivint Solar, explained how his tremendous training opportunities as a student at Monticello High School helped trigger his success.
Chance and his brother Zach are involved in the management of Vivint, which is one of the fastest growing companies in the country.
Two other Allred brothers, Dain and Darin, left Monticello to pursue medical training. Dane received a degree from the Air Fore Academy before becoming an orthopedic surgeon. He was a team doctor for the Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots and is currently the Chief of Sports Medicine at the Air Force Academy.
Darin Allred followed a similar path as an orthopedic surgeon. Darin is now the Orthopedic Department Chair at Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George, UT.
Four of the Allred Go Achieve scholarships are dedicated to business and one to medical. The four business winners will receive training at the Vivint headquarters in Lehi, UT and travel to Vivint Solar events in New York City for four days with Zach Allred.
The medical winner will have a training opportunity with the Allred brothers in St. George.
