If you have ever wanted custom plates for your car, this is the year to pay a little extra money to have the plates plus donate to the College of Eastern Utah’s scholarship fund.
On August 15 new personalized plate for your car are available. Shockingly it has the Eagle that represents the College of Eastern Utah right by the numbers. The funds for each plate sold is going to scholarships to help more students. These plates are located at any DMV offices for $43 for now only because of mandatory fee from the state, and the other $25 is for the student scholarships.
Vice-President for Advancement Brad King showed the value of these plates by saying “We can provide the equivalent of a full semester of tuition for every 30 plates purchased.”
If people pay a little extra charge, they also get to personalize their plate at the DMV. VP Kevin Walthers says some student’s want to get a new plate and personalize it to say their name or their initials and the year that they graduated. “I think there will be a pretty good rush to be first in line,” he said.
