Fallon Students Earn Jim Regan Memorial Scholarships

2022 Regan scholarship recipients

Five local students earned Jim Regan Memorial Scholarships as selected by the Churchill County Employee Management Committee. Those students received their scholarships at the Board of County Commissioners meeting on May 18. 

The Regan Memorial Scholarship was established by the family of former County Commissioner Jim Regan, who passed away unexpectedly in 2000 while in office. The scholarship is awarded by the County’s Employee Management Committee composed of county employees. 

Recipients must be Churchill County employees or the spouse, child or dependent of a county employee to be eligible for the scholarships which totaled $5,500 this year.

Earning scholarships for 2022 were:

  • Kyla Trotter is a Churchill County High School senior and daughter of Justice Court Judge Ben Trotter. She is a tennis player who currently serves as her senior class vice president. In high school, she has been recognized as a National Merit Scholarship commended student, an AP Scholar with Honors and is a member of the Nevada All-State Academic Team. She has served as a tutor, a part-time technician with Oasis Online, Girls Who Code instructor and a volunteer with the Churchill County Federal Credit Union. Kyla will attend the University of Nevada, Reno to study computer science.
