Congratulations to Ryan Holley, the 2017 recipient of the Scholarship!

Since Ryan was our first scholarship recipient not only did he receive a $2,000 check but our CEO Nick Gorden flew to Portland, Oregon to hand-deliver the check to our winner over lunch at the Portland City Grill.

“As CEO, there are a lot of tasks that can be unenjoyable, but hand-delivering this check to Ryan today wasn’t one of them! I’m excited about Ryan and his future endeavors and thrilled that Shine Solar was able to assist him with our scholarship. He’s a deserving recipient and I’m excited to see the good he’ll do in the solar industry.”
