The Bruce and Sharon Nesius Memorial Scholarship is an opportunity for high school seniors looking to further their education. A scholarship will be awarded to one successful candidate from KVHS, one from RCHS, and one from all other high schools/home schools in Jasper County REMC’s service territory.

4-H Electric builds confidence and life-long skills. If your son, daughter, or legal ward signs up for 4-H Electric and enters a project in the Jasper County Fair, we will provide a $15 bill credit after the Fair.
