Every year, the cooperative funds scholarships for twenty-eight outstanding students in our communities. Twenty-four were graduating high school seniors, and four were community college students.
Students that attended high school in Onslow County were selected in conjunction with the school system and its Sponsors For Academic Talent (S.A.T.) Program and other recipients were chosen by the individual school’s staff. Students received their scholarships in May.
The $1,000 scholarships will assist the youth as they continue with their academic endeavors.
Jones-Onslow EMC is proud of these and all the students in our area schools and communities. Congratulations to all of you!
