GES Announces 2021-22 CSR Scholarship Winners

Scholarship winners announced

GES is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2021-22 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Scholarship. GES' CSR scholarship program was established in 2007 with the goal of rewarding the outstanding academic achievements and community service displayed by children of GES employees across the company. 

Each year a committee comprised of GES employees review and scores the student applications. The three highest scoring applications are awarded scholarships. Our three winners each received a $2,000 scholarship towards their tuition in the 2021-2022 academic year.

Congratulations to all the scholarship winners on your continued success!

Justin Barnard, Scholarship winner

Christian Barnard

Freshman | Radford University, Virginia  

Major: Geospatial Technology

Son of Justin Barnard Blacksburg, VA, is going places…Radford University in Virginia to be exact. Christian will be majoring in Geospatial Technology, a subject near and dear to us here at GES – in fact, Christian said he has recently enjoyed surverying with his father. Christian has already earned his Associates of Art and Science Degree (magna cum laude), with a major in science and general education certificate from Whytheville Community College, while attending high school. At Radford, he will be combining his love of treasure hunts, geo-caches, hiking and exploring new places, in a way he can build a life for himself, and learn to understand people, places and the processes of the earth. Best of luck in your future endeavors Christian!  


Casey Brennan, Scholarship winner

Casey Brennan

Freshman | Towson University

Major: Business Administration 

Daughter of John Brennan (Wall Township, NJ), will be entering her freshman year at Towson University in Maryland. As a planned Business Administration major, Casey expects college will not only allow her to grow into a stronger individual, but also into a leader. She is eager to begin learning the intricacies of running a business, from financials and accounting to operations and human resources. Her long-term goal is become CEO of a company! Casey is on the right path, and will no doubt do amazing things with her future. We wish her nothing but success in her next four years!


Jared Doran, Scholarship winner

Jared Doran

Freshman | University of Washington

Major:  Engineering

Growing up in a small close close-knit community of St. Croix, and being heavily involved in community service, Jared Doran’s (son of Garfield Doran, St. Croix) goals and aspirations have always been in correlation with improving the community around him. His passion for math and science have led Jared to a path toward obtaining a degree in Engineering, focusing on industrial issues and renewable energy sources – subjects near and dear to us here at GES! Jared will be attending the University of Washington, a far reach from St. Croix, but undeniably he’s destined for great things – and maybe a career with GES when he graduates!
