Four Tucson-area students have been awarded Steve Engle Memorial/Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce scholarships.

The recipients are Justin Arnold, a nursing student at Pima Community College; Brianna Volpe, student body president at Mountain View High School; Alexander Yee, the fifth-ranked student at Marana High School; and Ryan Klee, a top graduate at Pusch Ridge Christian Academy.

All four plan to continue their studies at the University of Arizona. 

Steve Engle served as Oro Valley's mayor for many years, personally funding college scholarships for needy students. The Chamber took up the cause after Steve passed away.
