Three Cherokee County School District students have earned $5,000 scholarships from the Sawnee Electric Membership Foundation: Emily Baldwin and Jeremy Brown of Creekview High School and Logan Carras of Sequoyah High School.

In the past 15 years, the Foundation has awarded a total of $952,500 in scholarships to 232 exceptional high school seniors within Sawnee EMC’s seven-county service area.

“The Youth Scholarship Program is a shining example of what the Foundation and Sawnee EMC are all about; which is the commitment to be a partner and supporter in the various communities the Cooperative serves,” said Blake House, vice president of Sawnee EMC’s Member Services.
