Flint Energies, a Touchstone Energy Cooperative, is committed to providing service to its members with accountability, integrity, innovation and commitment to community. Scholarship applicants were required to complete an application which included an essay explaining how they demonstrate these core values in their lives. A panel of retired educators judged these essays blindly, and those scores – coupled with the students’ grade-point averages and financial need – determined the winners. The Flint Energies Foundation Scholarship is limited to students whose primary residence is within one of the 17 counties served by Flint Energies:  Bibb, Chattahoochee, Crawford, Dooly, Harris, Houston, Macon, Marion, Monroe, Muscogee, Peach, Schley, Sumter, Talbot, Taylor, Twiggs and Upson.

 

“We’re delighted to assist these accomplished students achieve their dream of a college education. This is the second year we have been able to award scholarships and we are looking forward to assisting many more students for years to come,” says Marian McLemore, Manager of Public Relations at Flint Energies.

 

More than $87,000 in scholarships was awarded by Flint Energies and the Flint Energies Foundation this spring. Eighteen scholarships, worth $2,500 each, were awarded to students pursuing a degree at a four-year college or university. One hundred and two scholarships, worth $160 each, were awarded to students pursuing a general equivalency diploma (GED).  In addition, one scholarship to South Georgia Technical College’s lineman school and other specialty scholarships were awarded.

 

The applications for the 2018 scholarship program will be posted on the cooperative’s website in December 2017. The next round of scholarships will be awarded in April 2018.
