Baldwin EMC’s Charitable Foundation recently honored the program’s scholarship recipients for the 2021-2022 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 2021 Operation Round Up new scholarship recipients are: Baleigh Collins, Sabrina Collins, Cali Hess, Carleen Horace and Nicollette Houston-Turner.
The 2021 Operation Round Up scholarship renewal recipients are: Bayleigh Blackard, Judson Braly, Michaela Brooke, Ashley Campos, Ayanna Carvin, Giulia Vasconcelos De Souza, Kate Dean, Malia Elliott, Abbie Hobbs, Sofia Larez, Colin Millar, Cairo Plauche’, Cassidy Schneider and Zander Westphal.
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.
