Claiborne Electric Cooperative awards college scholarships to area high school seniors each spring. The scholarship program is open to college-bound high school seniors who are Claiborne Electric members, or whose parent(s) or legal guardian(s) are members of Claiborne Electric. Winners are chosen through a random drawing of all eligible entrants.
This year, 20 scholarships were awarded, with each winner receiving $2,000 toward tuition, books, or student housing. Claiborne Electric has awarded college scholarships over the last 30 years.
“We are pleased to offer these scholarships to some of our area seniors, and we wish them the best of luck as they pursue their educational goals,” said Claiborne Electric General Manager & CEO, Mark Brown.
