Nolin RECC, a Touchstone Energy Cooperative, awards $7,000 in scholarship funds to local students each year.
The scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each, are awarded to six graduating high school students and one adult who is re-entering college. Recipients may use the funds at any college or vocational school of their choice.
LaRue County’s scholarship recipient is Ashley Hedgespeth, the daughter of John Larry and Cheryl Hedgespeth of Hodgenville. She is a graduate of LaRue County High School and is attending Elizabethtown Community and Technical College. She plans to transfer to Western Kentucky University and pursue a degree in elementary education.
Applications for the 2010 Nolin RECC Scholarship will be available in February.
