Year-round Events

  • Kingsmen Industrial Arts Scholarship Program
  • In 2017, the Kingsmen Car Club announced the "Kingsmen Industrial Arts Scholarship", a $1000 scholarship to help further technical training in Industrial Arts for two (2) students wishing to pursue a career in an Industrial Arts field of their choosing (auto mechanics, welding, etc).

    Students must be enrolled in a High School in Santa Cruz County, and be a graduating senior from that school. More information is available on the Scholarship Application.


    2022's Kingsmen Industrial Arts Scholarships went to Diego Castillo (not pictured), Alan Cortes (on left), and John Sapiens (on right), all from Santa Cruz High School; pictured with Kingsmen Steve Andrews (far left) and Tom Schmidt (far right), and SCHS Auto Shop teacher, Matt Svoboda (second from right).
    2021's Kingsmen Industrial Arts Scholarship went to Christopher Shaw of Scotts Valley High School, who is studying Automotive Restoration at McPherson College in McPherson, Kansas. An honorary scholarship was also awarded posthumously to Cash Bradley Paul Ebright (of San Lorenzo Valley High School), who drowned off the Santa Cruz coast before he could graduate.

    2020's Kingsmen Industrial Arts Scholarship went to Carlos Perez of Santa Cruz High School, who is studying Aeronautic Mechanics at Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology in Los Angeles, CA.
