In an effort to educate the public concerning the issue of “Publicly Owned and Operated Electric Utility Providers”, the Bushnell City Council adopted a municipal electric scholarship program to award one graduating senior with a $500.00 scholarship for any Florida University, Community College, or Vocational School. The scholarship may be used for tuition purposes. This is an annual budgeted expense. The qualifications are as follows:
• Applicant must reside in the home of a City electric customer
• 2.5 G.P.A. minimum
• Graduating Senior - Class of 2012
• Submission of an essay on required topic
This year, the City received an application for the $500.00 electric scholarship for 2012 from Taylor Maddox, graduating South Sumter High School with a GPA of 3.0. Her application was accompanied by the required essay on the topic of an alternative source of renewable energy. She is planning on pursuing her education in the field of study for early childhood education.
This scholarship was awarded to Taylor Maddox during the regular council meeting on May 7th, 2012.
Congratulations Taylor Maddox!
It’s never too early to think about your options for the future. The City of Bushnell will be awarding another electric scholarship to one qualifying senior for the class of 2013. Don’t miss out! (Qualifications for the electric scholarship can be found above)
