Berry Petroleum made a large donation, $25,000, to honor long-time Taft High substitute and community member Kelsey Meadows, daughter of IT Manager Stacy Meadows who was killed in the Las Vegas shooting last October 1.

Kelsey’s father, Greg Meadows, has worked for Berry Petroleum for 34 years and the the CEO and Board of Directors approved and offered the donation after Kelsey’s family decided to start the scholarship fund following the tragedy. Stacy Meadows reflected that, “We wanted something good to come out of it.”

Students will apply through the regular TUHS local scholarship application process in order to be considered. The family plans to award several scholarships per year for at least five years to local students in honor of Kelsey.
