Chico, Calif -- For the first time ever, the Chico Community Scholarship Association is able to give away two four year scholarships to students.
The scholarships are part of a mission that Chico native Mary Beth Growden started, and now that she's died her son is keeping her legacy alive through education.
For years Mary Beth was giving away smaller scholarships for high school students in Chico but now her son John is delivering a nearly $400,000 check so students studying teaching can attend college free for four years.
“It was important for her to give back to them so just happy to be able to give back to ccsa and help the community,” said John.
Members of the Community College Scholarship Association say two students have already been chosen for this years awards.
For those interested in next years awards you'll have to apply online then have an interview with the Growden family.
