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 May.
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 2019 scholarship recipients are Kaylee Adams of Marbury High School, Libby Burdett and Michael Goodwin of Stanhope Elmore High School and Samuel Parrett of BB Comer High School. Adams plans to attend Auburn University for a degree in Aviation Management; Burdett plans to attend Auburn University for a degree in Electrical Engineering; Goodwin plans to study Mechanical Engineering and Music at the University of Alabama; and Parrett plans to study Machining at Central Alabama Community College.
