Cobb EMC Community Foundation Scholarship

The Cobb EMC Community Foundation announced this year’s winners of the Cobb EMC Community Foundation Scholarships. Fourteen scholarships in the amount of $5,000 each were awarded to area high school seniors with a primary residence served by Cobb EMC.

“Each year, we are excited to honor these students and are grateful to our members that participate in the Operation Round Up Program, which makes these scholarships possible,” said Cathy Lane, member of the Cobb EMC Community Foundation Board

To be considered, candidates had to be accepted to an undergraduate degree program at any accredited two- or four-year university or any accredited vocational or technical institute. Additionally, applicants also were required to write a two-page autobiographical sketch, and submit an essay highlighting their future plans.

“These scholarships help area students continue their education and position them for future success,” said Mark Justice, director of education and community relations at Cobb EMC. “We’re excited to hear about all of their accomplishments as they move on to college or a technical school.”
