Wheatland To Award $10,000 in Scholarships

Students From Area High Schools Will Be Chosen

​Wheatland Electric will announce the winners of its inaugural scholarship program at its 67th Annual Meeting April 15, 2015 in Syracuse, KS.  The cooperative will give away $10,000 in all.  Recipients will be judged on their academic performance, school activities, career goals and a 1,000 word essay.​

The Wheatland Board of Trustees voted to make one $1,000 scholarship available to each of the high schools in Wheatland’s service territory.   Eligible high schools in Wheatland’s territory are: Argonia, Caldwell, Chaparral, Conway Springs, Deerfield, Great Bend, Greeley County, Holcomb, Norwich, Scott County, South Haven, Syracuse and Wichita County.

The scholarship recipients will be the children of Wheatland Electric members, but everything else about their identities remains a secret for now.  “Wheatland Electric was founded by 9 visionary members and has a rich history,” said Board President Wes Campbell.  “We’re establishing this scholarship program to help develop the leaders of tomorrow and make sure Wheatland’s future is just as bright as its past.”
