Student Named Semifinalist for Carroll EMC's Walter Harrison Scholarship
Carroll Electric Membership Cooperative recently named Lindsey Green of Temple as its semifinalist for the Walter Harrison Scholarship. The Walter Harrison Scholarship is a program sponsored by Georgia’s electric membership corporations. The $1,000 scholarship can be applied to academic expenses at any accredited two- or four-year university, college or vocational-technical institute in Georgia.
"I would like to thank Carroll EMC for their generous consideration, and I hope to be a good reflection of what our community has to offer during the next few years," said Green who is a graduating senior at Temple High School. “I plan on attending LaGrange College to pursue a degree in political science. After my undergraduate studies, I plan on pursuing a law degree.”
Twelve Walter Harrison Scholarships will be awarded to students with exemplary academic records. Grade-point average, SAT scores, academic standing, scholastic honors, and financial need are considered when determining a student’s eligibility. A scholarship committee comprised of directors, managers and key staff at Georgia’s 41 EMCs seeks to award scholarships to remarkable students who may otherwise not be able to afford college.
Students applying for the scholarship must be accepted or enrolled in an accredited undergraduate degree program, must complete a two-page application, and will write a two-page autobiographical sketch which includes future plans. The scholarship is available to any college level student regardless of age.
“Our hope is to help raise another generation of great leaders through the Walter Harrison Scholarship program,” said Taylor Key, Community Relations Specialist for Carroll EMC. “Carroll EMC’s goal is to make a meaningful contribution in the triumphant moments of our future leaders.”
