Seniors, it is time to apply for the Walter Harrison Scholarships, funded through donations contributed by EMCs throughout Georgia. This statewide scholarship program was created in 1985 in memory of Walter Harrison, a Georgia and national rural electric co-op pioneer. The scholarship fund will pay $1,000 to each scholarship winner, with the check payable to both the school and the recipient. This scholarship can be used at any two or four-year accredited college or university in Georgia, including vocational-technical schools. The applications must be submitted to Whitney Johnson by January 14, 2022, to be considered for this year’s competition. You may also access the application at www.sumteremc.com under the community tab. See Mrs. Jernigan if you have questions or need a printed application.
Congratulations to Alison Stubbs on her acceptance to Jacksonville State University!

It’s the only way they can apply for federal or state financial aid. The FAFSA® will determine their eligibility for grants, scholarships, work-study programs, and federal student loans.
