This year was the first year for the newest scholarship program at Harrison County REC. There were a wide variety of talented high school seniors from our service area that applied. Each student’s application was judged based on their community involvement, extracurricular activities, a letter of recommendation, and their essay answer to the question, “How do cooperatives benefit our communities?”
“Harrison County REC is proud to support our local high school seniors as they begin to pursue their careers and become leaders in our communities. We hope that these scholarships can help support students as they begin their new ventures in life.” says HCREC Manager, Joe Farley.
