Elizabethtown, KY (May 13, 2014) – Bluegrass Cellular has announced the recipients of the 2014 Bluegrass Cellular Scholarship Program, the company’s annual initiative to support local, college-bound high school seniors. As in years past, Bluegrass’s scholarship committee has selected 18 students, each of whom will be awarded a $1,500 scholarship.
“Year after year, the scholarship program demonstrates just how many bright, driven students we have in our region,” said Barry Nothstine, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Bluegrass Cellular. “It’s a very encouraging thing to see. This year’s recipients are exemplary students, and we’re honored to support their academic endeavors.”
The local 2014 Bluegrass Cellular Scholarship recipient was:
- Katelynn Hayes, Grayson County High School
The Bluegrass Cellular Scholarship Program, now in its 13th year, is offered on an annual basis to graduating seniors who attend high school in the company’s 40-county home service area. Scholarship recipients are selected by a panel of judges based on criteria including financial need, academic achievement, and school and community involvement.
This May, Bluegrass also awarded Somerset High School student Erin Stephens a college scholarship as part of the company’s partnership with the Foundation for Rural Service (FRS). The FRS is the philanthropic arm of NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association and, like Bluegrass, strives to further higher education opportunities among rural high school students.
