Dawson Public Power District has awarded Isaac Anderson the 2024 Dawson PPD Utility Line Scholarship. The scholarship is valued at $2,000. Anderson, of North Platte, is the son of Patrick and Katie Lussetto, also of North Platte. He is currently attending Northeast Community College in Norfolk.

“I contemplated several professional fields to enter after high school,” Anderson wrote in his application essay. “I liked the idea of working outdoors, working with my hands, and operating some good-sized machinery and trucks. Each day, there is something new and challenging to learn. Most of all, I really like to idea of helping people and making sure their electricity will be working, which is vital to homes and businesses and in some cases means life and death.”

The Dawson PPD Utility Line Scholarship has been awarded to one student annually since 2001.

“We’re proud to support the education of our future lineworkers,” said Dawson PPD Manager of Operations Jeremy Kaiser. “Safety is key in this line of work, and education is the vessel that gets us there. It’s important to us as employers of lineworkers that our new hires come well prepared for the job.”
