Five Area High School Graduates Earn
Electric Cooperative College Scholarships
Five high school students from Central Virginia have each earned college scholarships awarded by the Educational Scholarship Foundation of the Virginia, Maryland & Delaware Association of Electric Cooperatives (VMDAEC).
The recipients are:
Alicia Adams of Appomattox, a senior at Appomattox County High School and the daughter of Catherine Adams;
Alexandra LaRosa of Palmyra, a senior at Fluvanna County High School and the daughter of Darlene and Terrence LaRosa;
Rika Patterson of Gladstone, a senior at Nelson County High School and the daughter of Delores Patterson;
Kaylee Wallace of Palmyra, a senior at Fluvanna County High School and the daughter of Gina Nester; and
Christopher White of Appomattox, a senior at Appomattox County High School and the son of Kimberly White.
All of these students earned these scholarships based on a competitive screening process and were eligible because their parents are consumer-member of Central Virginia Electric Cooperative.
This year, the VMDAEC Educational Scholarship Foundation is awarding 39 $1,000 and nine $500 scholarships for a total of $43,500 – the largest dollar amount in the history of the Foundation. Scholarships are awarded to deserving students who live in areas served by electric cooperatives in Delaware, Maryland and Virginia and may used by the recipient for college tuition, fees and books.
