While some of our youth programs were canceled this year due to COVID-19, LaGrange County REMC is proud to announce the recipients of our 2021 scholarships. We awarded three $1,000 scholarships to help students in our community further their education.
To be eligible, the recipients’ parents or guardians must be members of LaGrange County REMC. Candidates were judged based on grade point average, a short autobiography and letters of recommendation, as well as their involvement at school and in the community. Congratulations to this year’s recipients!
