JCJC students receive PRVEPA scholarships

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Forty-eight Jones County Junior College students recently received Pearl River Valley Electric Power Association scholarships through it's “Round Up for Education Scholar's Program.” In all, the power association awarded more than 170 students from throughout PRVEPA's 12-county service area.

“Education is vital to all of us in South Mississippi, as a cooperative..a rural electric cooperative, we think one of our goals should be to help increase the quality of life for all members who live in our service territories,” said Kurt Brautigam, PRVEPA's Manager of Member Services. “Certainly education and higher education is very important to that end.”

Brautigam added scholarships are available to members, their spouses or dependent children who are enrolling for their first semester at a Mississippi community/junior college this fall and are participating in the “Round Up for Education” program.
