Nine area graduates have a diploma in one hand and a Federated scholarship in the other.
The Federated Rural Electric Trust recently awarded nine $700 scholarships. One scholarship was awarded in each of the six Federated districts, plus three more to the son/daughter of a Federated member for District At-Large where remaining applicants had a second chance to win. These are the same districts used for the co-op’s director elections.
Recipients include Carter Johnson and Kelsey Soleta of Lakefield: Katelynn Sommer, Brock Lutterman and Lincoln Becker of Fairmont; Noah Orlikowski and Rachel Tusa of Alpha; Sutton Bohlsen of Northrop and Kaylyn Domek of Estherville,
Thirty-six students completed Federated’s short scholarship application. This is the 21st year that students had to apply.
