CAEC supports continuing education through the Electric Cooperative Foundation Scholarship Program each year. Graduating high school seniors in CAEC’s service area are eligible to compete for four, $2,500 scholarships. Applications are available in December and are awarded in April.
The program, established in 1997, awards scholarships to dependents of members of participating electric cooperatives. Granted only to graduating high school seniors, the student must attend a four-year college, a junior college, a technical school or vocational school of the scholarship recipient’s choice provided that such school is an accredited institution.
The 2018 scholarship recipients are Noah Glenn of Jemison High School, Carson Littleton of Thorsby High School, Olivia Payne of Isabella High School and Brian White of Wetumpka High School. Glenn plans to attend Samford University to study nursing, Littleton plans to attend Mississippi State University for agricultural education, Payne plans to study marketing at the University of Alabama and White plans to attend Auburn University Montgomery to study information and cyber-systems security.
