Each year, Tri-County EMC awards $6,000 in scholarship funds through the Cooperative Scholarship. Three students from the Tri-County service area each received a $2,000 Tri-County EMC Cooperative Scholarship in June. Funds were awarded based on academics, financial need and a demonstrated commitment to the community in which they reside. The Tri-County EMC Cooperative Scholarships are funded by House Bill 431, which enabled unclaimed capital credits to fund local education. The next Cooperative Scholarship deadline is April 15, 2022. Congratulations to our recipients! Learn more on our website at www.tri-countyemc.com/cooperativescholarship.cms. (44784003)
