To honor the trade that is the backbone of our business, Tri-County EMC established the Lineman Scholarship in 2021. This year, the cooperative is pleased to award the $3,000 scholarship to Jackson Brown and Lukas Tarpley to complete the lineman training program through the Technical College System of Georgia.

Jackson Brown is a graduate of Jones County High School in Gray. Following in the footsteps of his grandfather, father, and uncle, he plans to enter the Electrical Lineworker program at South Georgia Technical College where he will learn the necessary knowledge and skills to gain employment in the industry.

Lukas Tarpley is a graduate of John Milledge Academy in Milledgeville. This fall he will earn his Electrical Lineworker certification at South Georgia Technical College. “Being a lineman has always intrigued me due to my passion for hands-on work,” said Tarpley. “As a lineman, I would have the opportunity to apply my skills in a rewarding and impactful way.”
