Baldwin EMC’s Charitable Foundation recently honored the program’s scholarship recipients for the 2019-2020 school year. Foundation board members held a luncheon in Summerdale to recognize all of the students, both first-time recipients and those whose scholarships were approved for renewal.
The 2019 Operation Round Up new scholarship recipients are: Bayleigh Blackard (Daphne High School), Michaela Brooke (Fairhope High School), Elissa Calhoun (Foley High School), Ayanna Carvin (Foley High School), Christian Forsman (Foley High School), Abbie Hobbs (Emmanuel Academy), Taylor Hubbard (Robertsdale High School), Cassidy Schneider (Spanish Fort High School) and Connor Smith (Robertsdale High School).
The 2019 Operation Round Up scholarship renewal recipients are: Judson Braly, Kate Dean, Morgan Franklin, Lean Gillis, Marissa Harris, Seth Henderson, Reed Linam and Cairo Pauche.
The grants were awarded using funds collected through Operation Round Up, a program in which participating Baldwin EMC members allow the co-op to round up their electric bills to the next highest dollar amount. The extra change is distributed for grants meeting the criteria of food, shelter, clothing, health, environment and education.
