SCOTT CITY, KS–Wheatland Electric Cooperative, Inc. is proud to announce that 14 high school seniors have been awarded a $1,000 scholarship each to continue their education.
Each year, Wheatland Electric provides fourteen $1,000 scholarships to high school seniors who attend one of the 13 high schools in Wheatland Electric’s service territory, as well as one at-large scholarship for a student whose parent/guardian is a member of Wheatland Electric but does not attend one of the schools in our service territory.
This year, nearly 70 students applied for the scholarships. A panel of the Wheatland Electric Board of Trustees reviewed and selected the scholarship recipients.
“Wheatland Electric is committed to the leaders of tomorrow and is proud to award these scholarships to assist students in obtaining their educational goals,” said Bruce W. Mueller, our general manager and CEO.
Mueller awarded 10 of our scholarship recipients in-person during our 73rd Annual Meeting in Great Bend, KS on April 14, 2021.
