LaGrange County REMC recently 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 the cooperative. Candidates were judged anonymously based on grade point average, a short autobiography and letters of recommendation, as well as their involvement at school and in the community. This year’s recipients are:
Brandon Eash is a graduate of Westview High School and plans to attend Bethel College to pursue a degree in secondary education. His career goal is to become a high school teacher and tennis coach. He is the son of Rich and Lauri Eash of Shipshewana.
Cassidy Gunthorp is a graduate of Prairie Heights High School and will attend the University of Indianapolis in the fall. She plans to earn a degree in psychology with a concentration in pre-occupational therapy so she can help children as a child psychologist or pediatric occupational therapist. She is the daughter of Greg and Lei Gunthorp of LaGrange.
Anne Troyer is a graduate of Lakeland High School and plans to attend Purdue University to pursue a degree in animal science, as part of a pre-vet track. With her degree, she plans to become a large and small animal veterinarian, with an avian speciality, and open her own practice. She is the daughter of Susie Troyer of LaGrange.
LaGrange County REMC is proud to support our local youth through programs such as this. We congratulate the winners and wish them the best in their post secondary education!
