Scholarship spotlight

Meet the 2022 recipients

Posted on Aug 07 2022 in Southeastern Indiana REMC

A scholarship is a great source of financial aid for college students, which is why high school seniors (and their parents) put so much effort into applying for as many scholarships as possible. Some require students to write essays, others are awarded based on academic achievements or athletic ability, and others are based on majors, interests, and more!  

When the REMC board of directors decided to offer three $500 scholarships for graduating seniors, they chose to make the process simple and the eligibility guidelines broad so more students would apply and have an opportunity to win. The brief online application was created and advertised during the months leading up to the cooperative’s annual meeting in March.

“We were pleased to receive a total of 64 applications from students across our service territory this year”, said B.J. Myers, director of communications and creative services for the REMC. All eligible applicants were entered in a drawing, which took place during the annual business meeting at South Ripley High School.  

We caught up with our three college-bound scholarship winners in late June to talk to them before they head off to school to begin the next chapter of their lives. “I was so impressed by each of these students”, said Myers. “They have goals and a plan to achieve those goals, but they are also open to the opportunities that life has in store for them.”
