The scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each are awarded to graduating high school students with one going to an adult co-op member who is re-entering college. Recipients may use the funds at any college or vocational school of their choice.

Two local students honored are Katie Barros and Alec Thompson.

Barros is a 2012 graduate of LaRue County High School.  She plans to attend Ozark Bible Institute & College in Missouri. After graduation, Katie hopes to return to her hometown to work in ministry.

Her parents are Jerry and Barbara Barros of Hodgenville.     

Thompson is a 2012 graduate of Elizabethtown High School and is enrolled at the University of Louisville Speed School to major in architecture and engineering.  Believing young kids at risk need a positive influence and role model, Alec has been involved in Big Brothers/Big Sisters for two years as a mentor.

His parents are Christopher and Maureen Thompson of Hodgenville.   

Applications for the 2013 Nolin RECC Scholarship will be available in February.
