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 2020 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!
John (Blake) Egli is a graduate of Westview High School and plans to attend Bethel University to pursue a degree in health and physical education. With his degree, he plans to become a teacher and pursue a coaching position. He is the son of J.J. and Stacey Egli of Wolcottville.
John McCoy is a graduate of Westview High School and will attend Purdue University in the fall. He plans to earn a degree in forestry and natural resources, so he can one day work with the National Park Service to preserve America’s wildlands. He is the son of Michael and Nikole McCoy of Wolcottville.
Kate Papai is a graduate of Prairie Heights High School and plans to attend Ball State University to pursue a degree in art education. She is the daughter of Heather and Steve Papai of Wolcottville.
We also want to thank the number of children and teenagers who applied to take part in our Indiana Youth Tour and Touchstone Energy Camp. Your safety is LaGrange County REMC’s priority, and with the ever-changing mandates of the COVID-19 pandemic, co-ops across the state and country made the tough decision to cancel the events this year. We appreciate your interest, and hope you stay involved in the cooperative’s programs in the future!
