AMERICUS – South Georgia Technical College (SGTC) accounting student, Annie Streeter, was one of the four inaugural recipients of the Flint Energies Foundation Technical College Scholarship. She will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship toward her technical college education for the 2016-17 academic year.
Flint Energies, a Touchstone Energy Cooperative, is committed to providing service to its members with accountability, integrity, innovation and commitment to community. Scholarship applicants were required to complete an application which included four short essays, explaining how they demonstrate these core values in their lives. A panel of retired educators judged these essays blindly, and those scores – coupled with the students’ grade-point averages, community involvement and financial need – determined the winners. The Flint Energies Foundation Scholarship is limited to students whose primary residence is within one of the 17 counties served by Flint Energies: Bibb, Chattahoochee, Crawford, Dooly, Harris, Houston, Macon, Marion, Monroe, Muscogee, Peach, Schley, Sumter, Talbot, Taylor, Twiggs and Upson.
“We’re delighted to assist these accomplished students achieve their dream of a college education. This is the first time we have been able to award scholarships and we are looking forward to assisting many more students for years to come,” says Marian McLemore, Manager of public relations at Flint Energies.
