Bright Minds Scholarship program

PG&E will move out its new Bright Minds Scholarship program during a student application event in Cal State Bakersfield’s Walter Stiern Library. PG&E will award up to $1 million in scholarships.

The winners will receive full-ride scholarships of up to $30,000 per year, and program finalists will receive $2,500 toward their studies. The scholarships will be awarded based on community leadership, financial need, personal triumph and academic achievement, with preference given to first-generation college students. Students must be enrolled in a full-time undergraduate program at an accredited two-or four-year College, university or vocational-technical school for the 2012-13 school year.

The Panama-Buena Vista Union School District board on Tuesday is expected to hear a presentation on a substitute teacher management system, vote on an agreement with an architectural firm to conduct a facilities master plan and accept several donations.

Trustees will hear about eSchool Solutions’ Smart Find Express, computer software which manages teacher absences and replacements. The automated system could also manage classified staffing absences.

The board is also expected to vote on an agreement with Ordiz-Melby Architects, Inc in combination with S.B. Anderson Inc. to offer facilities master planning: align facilities with educational objectives and to study needs for future campus development, officials said. The contract is for architectural services not to exceed $50,000.

The district will accept the following donations:

    One trumpet and case from Jason Frantz Plumbing for Berkshire Elementary
    Two complete salad bars, a value of $6,481, from Sun World for Tevis Junior High School
    Educational supplies from, a $500 value, to Seibert Elementary School preschool and kindergarten class

The deadline to apply is February, 17.
