Hanna Nelson, Jackson Flowers Named EREC Scholarship Winners

April 30, 2018

Saturday, Escambia River Electric Cooperative awarded two $4,000 scholarships to local high school seniors. The Escambia County winner was Hannah Nelson from Northview High School, and the Santa Rosa County winner was Jackson Flowers from Jay High School.

The award were presented Saturday during EREC’s annual meeting at Northview High School.

This was EREC’s 21st year to offer the Herman D. Johnson Scholarship Awards to a graduating senior with a parent or guardian that is a member of the cooperative..

In the past,  capital credits issued by EREC that were unclaimed had to be turned over to the state. But state legislation now allows such funds to be deposited into a qualified, educational charity fund. The EREC membership voted to use these funds in the form of scholarships.

Both students will receive $1,000 for each of four years provided they continue to meet the scholarship criteria.
