Columbia REA is proud to recognize three local class of 2021 High School seniors with 4-year scholarships to continue their education at the college level.
The Clark A. Brewington Memorial Scholarship is in the amount of $1,500. Two additional academic scholarships are in the amount of $1,000.
Each scholarship is renewable for up to four years.
A volunteer committee made up of Columbia REA members evaluated nine applicants from High Schools within the Columbia REA service area.
Students were asked to submit a 500-word essay, transcripts and letters of recommendations from school and community leaders.
We are also delighted to announce this year’s recipient of the $2,500 Jeff Meredith Scholarship, named in honor of former Columbia REA lineman Jeff Meredith.
This scholarship is awarded to one qualifying applicant per year, who is enrolled or will be enrolled in a recognized Electrical Lineworker
Program (ELP). Congratulations to this year’s group of impressive and inspiring young people!
